I've had this happen, even when I am on a bike. It is a genuine problem.

Part of the problem is that perfectly reasonable riders who have no intention of causing anyone distress or harm are reluctant to have a bell or yell out to people or whatever to get out of their way, because they don't want to be impolite. Then they wind up startling someone.

I've seen bells that work like a backpacker's bear-bell, that just passively ring to alert others of their presence. I wonder if this might be the way to go?
