The level of noise around us is constantly increasing,and is affecting the quality of our lives.What causes the noise?What should be done about it?
Noise is increasing to a high level and becoming a kind of pollution that affects people’s work and life.In this essay I will analyze the main causes for noise pollution and propose some measures that can be done to tackle this problem.
A large number of vehicles on roads produce loud noise,causing big trouble to those who live close to the road.Things can be worse if drivers honk the horn impatiently.Construction and maintenance work seems to be endless in the city,with various kinds of machines running continuously to resurface the street,widen the road or build subways.
In addition,people’s business and entertainment activities are main sources of noise.Those out-of-door markets and roadside stalls make a lot of noise,disturbing residents in the neighborhood,not to mention night pubs and patio dining areas that are open till late at night.The noise from indoor activities can also be annoying.When people have parties or play loud music at home,their neighbors may be tortured by unbearable noise.
Undoubtedly,measures need to be taken to reduce the level of noise and keep the impact of noise as less as possible.Governments should play a leading role in noise control and reduction.Rules and regulations should be set to specify the noise level that is allowed in certain areas.Fines can be imposed on those who produce noise exceeding the limit.
Other measures include encouraging public transport to reduce the road traffic,installing soundproof materials in some buildings,etc.As individuals,we should always remember to keep quiet in public places and be considerate of others when we have to make noise.
