PARSONSBURG, Md. - Automotive experts are now looking into adding bigger, more noticeable signage inside Hybrid and electric cars.
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SEA) is recommending larger letters or badges on both sides and the rear, that are more visible to first responders.
It's been said that the high-voltage systems in hybrid cars can be hazardous, but local firefighters say the vehicles don't pose any major threat, that would call for action.
"Extricating a person is probably our biggest challenge; cutting into the car, getting the patient out of the car, adjusting out tools and getting them out," said Vance Webster, Assistant Chief of the Parsonsburg Fire Company.
Officials say this should not deter anyone from purchasing a Hybrid vehicle, by any means. They also say additional signage couldn't hurt.
