The sound is there, not only when driving down, but also on the top of the highest dunes, and it is like 'doom, doom, dooom' and it sounds very scary...
On the other hand I don't understand this California people, how they are doing their experiments, and even how they get money from tax payers to write about such an existing fact scientifically. They should come to us and drive with us :038:
