Mission ‘PEACE’ Reducing Noise Pollution by Autos and Honking A step towards a Peaceful & Healthy Bangalore WHO we are: A bunch of Bangalore residents who have got together to transform our city.

THE POSSIBILITY of the project is Peace & Health. The project will reduce noise pollution caused by auto-rickshaws and unnecessary honking in the city of Bangalore. The opportunity of the project is a quiet and caring city. Our AIM: Noise on the road has a harmful effect on people leading to aggression and loss of hearing. It disturbs one's peace of mind and affects our health & well-being. Bangalore, our Garden City, is fast growing and with it traffic & Noise Pollution are increasing. Our aim is to reduce noise pollution by autos and honking and restore Bangalore to the Peaceful city it once was. With it will come Peace, Good Health and Caring.

NOISE POLLUTION & HOW it affects people. Noise pollution is a displeasing human- or machine-created sound that disrupts the activity or balance of human or animal life. A common form of noise pollution is from transportation, principally motor vehicles. Noise health effects are both health and behavioral in nature. Noise pollution can cause annoyance and aggression, hypertension, high stress levels, tinnitus, hearing loss, sleep disturbances, and other harmful effects. This in turn has an effect on our worklife and in our relationship with our families & friends.

WHO is at risk – Everyone in the city, especially old people, sick people, and vehicle DRIVERS. In particular, autorickshaw drivers, who are continuously exposed to the sound of their vehicles, & policemen.

HOW we PLAN to achieve it 1. Create public awareness & support for project. 2. Promote the use of silencers in autorickshaws. 3. Implement laws on noise pollution. Work Plan- - Create awareness in schools, colleges and offices & in the print media and radio, TV: o On the ill effects of noise pollution; o Discourage Unnecessary Honking; o Encourage use Only of Autos that are not noise polluting - Create awareness among the auto rickshaw drivers about the damage caused by noise pollution. Autos to bring noise levels below the prescribed levels. - Convince Government Regulators- Police, RTO, Pollution Control Board- to implement laws on noise pollution.

I'm pleased to see such a forum which addresses the noise pollution. Please let me know how I can join this forum and what contributions I can make for the cause of noise pollution. I'd like to add that half of the noise pollution is caused because of auto rickshaw operators modifying their exhausts for whatever reasons that they are aware of. Also unnecessary honking is another menace. I've one other concern and not sure if it needs to be added in the same subject. It's the use of high beam during the nights. People use high beam unaware of the fact that it causes lot of problems for the opposite person. Please address this concern too along with noise pollution. Thank you Vasudev comment guidelines
