Verbal Bicycle Bell
From the website:
This bicycle speaker records and plays any message to warn others of your presence.
The device announces "On your left" or any verbal warning with the touch of a button, proclaiming your approach more effectively than a bell without taxing your vocal cords.
The unit holds up to a 20-second recording and the built-in 44mm speaker plays messages at 80 decibels (about as loud as a vacuum cleaner) to ensure your warning is audible over ambient noise.
It can also play a traditional bicycle bell sound.
Mounts to handlebars with the included clamp.
Includes three LR44 batteries.
2.75"L x 2.25"W.
Weighs 2-1/3 oz.
$24.95 (bicycle not included).

My problem: Korean or one of the Chinese dialects? My corner of LA County makes anything short of the sound of a truck full of pigs ramming a truck full of air horns mere background noise. Add the substantial number of drivers who learned on British driving rules and bikes are best kept off-road for those without a death wish.

Heh! Peachie -- I wish someone would have mentioned this before my latest accident!
But then again, I look stupid in a helmet...dead is better than stupid if you are already stupid!

How about if the first thing it says with movement is:
"Do you have your helmet on?"
