And if your alam goes on, what you will do ? if it's just a rammer, that will change anything. the better thing to do is to go on #EU1 or the new experiemental server #EU3

I can't see this being very usefull. I mean you can hear them coming if you haven't got any music on and you can see them in your mirrors from some distance (depending on your graphics settings).
I also agree with Suzylu89, if they intend to ram you, there is not that much you can do about it, except for starting to record (if you have the programs for it) and report them.

In my opinion, the GPS gives already too many information that distracts the driver.

The idea, that an additional alarm triggers every time a speeding car approaches would simply be too much.

-1 what are you going to do if the alarm triggers? Stamp on the brakes and get rear ended and banned? drive off-road and potentially roll over? What if it's just an admin trying to get to a scene using their car? Not to mention, just because a car is"going fast" doesn't mean you should worry about it, I'd rather get an alarm for a vehicle in my lane within 200m than some speeder. 

 

Not to to mention there's already a lot to focus on when you play with a realistic setup, so having an alarm is more distracting meaning you're more likely to cause an accident and get punished than ever before. 

 

Something more useful would would be an alarm or gps trigger that detects another vehicle in your lane heading towards you, which could be a car rammer, a car idiot or a truck rammer or truck idiot overtaking, that's more deadly than some random speeders.

This would be very interesting if you were in Calais or a popular car area. Just imagine if this was actually a thing. It would be like sitting in the cockpit of a plane with all the warnings going off at once. And besides the majority of people with cars use the 170hp engine so you can hear it from a mile off, I take that as my warning XD

For me the fun in multiplayer lies in encountering other real players around, be it people I drive with in convoys or general traffic.

 

I already set up my mirrors as well as the distance to draw objects in the tab menu to the max setting to get the best render distance possible. Having an alarm triggered by cars would just distract me. Besides I saw both good and bad truck drivers as well as good and bad car drivers.

 

Also there are servers without cars and with speed limits and both so if cars don´t fit your playstyle you have the choice to switch servers.

Rather than an alarm, how about a different icon on the GPS for cars? This doesn't sound like it would be too hard to implement. Use a square, for example, instead of a circle for cars only. I don't like the alarm because there are already plenty of sounds going on in the game (surrounding vehicles, horns, your truck, radio, etc.).

I find it way more realistic and safe to drive with disabled players visibility on the GPS.

It forces me to look out of the windows for traffic (#iheartTrackIR) instead of getting distracted by little moving icons on a map.

 

I do not care what kind of vehicle is approaching, and I definitely do not want a warning sound for that.
