Noise pollution endangers environment in Ctg

Noise pollution endangers environment in Ctg

Chattogram Bureau :

Along with the loud hydraulic horn came the emergence of the VIP horn or the electric horn. Sirens of VIP horns sound in the vehicles of government bureaucrats, private and influential people on the road, which causes excessive noise pollution.
Although it is completely prohibited in the environmental law, no significant initiative has been seen to stop the production.
Apart from this, there is uncontrolled use of hydraulic horn, construction work and microphone in the vehicle.
As a result, hospitals, educational institutions, residential or commercial areas, the noise intensity of about 30 to 50 decibels more than the tolerable level has endangered the city’s environment.
To prevent noise pollution, the Metropolitan and Chattogram regions of the Department of Environment operate mobile courts simultaneously.
The mobile court managed by the metropolitan office collected a fine of Tk55,500 in 32 cases and confiscated and destroyed 51 hydraulic horns.
The mobile court managed by the Chittagong Region Office collected a fine of Tk11,000 and confiscated and destroyed 175 hydraulic horns in 4 cases.
