Silent (but deadly) trucks on the roads?

I like the idea of quieter roads through the use of electric vehicles, but as a friend once said to me when he saw a silent electric motorcycle in town for the first time "Now there's an accident waiting to happen".

So will it have to generate an artificial engine noise or will the motors, wheels on the road and its load jostling about be loud enough to alert other road users and pedestrians of its existance & speed?
