I had one of those "hi-bred" cars pass me a while back. It was fairly

totally quiet.

This is the only time that I can remember anything like this happening
and I blame it on car being so quiet.

That has happened to me a few times, but I can usually hear noise of their tires. What has unnerved me is electric scooters overtaking me on multi-use paths; they do not have particularly aggressive tread patterns and so make little noise that can be heard over traffic.

Yet another argument against MUP's I suppose :-)
