|Title:||Road traffic and noise pollution|
|Abstract:||Noise pollution generated from road traffic is a nuisance world over, especially in urban areas. Noise pollution is influenced by many traffic parameters like road surface, tyre, driving behaviour, the number and types of vehicles & infrastructure etc. It may be seen that reduction in noise level by any one of the parameters varies between 2-6 dBA. Noise has several different effects on health and well-being. Exposure to noise develops both short term and long term effects. Among the types of noises—continuous, intermittent and impulsive— impulsive noise is the utmost disturbing one to most of the people. This paper discusses the noise levels observed due to road traffic, effects of noise on human health and control measures.|
