COM­PET­ING TO BE THE NOISIEST

Bangkok Post - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

Re: “Keep­ing the noise down”, (Opin­ion, Oct 12).

Read­ing your ed­i­to­rial and other ar­ti­cles re­gard­ing Thai­land’s wors­en­ing noise pol­lu­tion, I’m sur­prised traf­fic noise has never once been men­tioned! This for me is the most ir­ri­tat­ing source of noise as it seems mo­tor­cy­cles and tuk tuks are com­pet­ing to be the noisiest, most ob­nox­ious ve­hi­cles on Bangkok’s roads.

In Sept 2016 the Post re­ported on the po­lice pur­chas­ing ex­pen­sive equip­ment to mea­sure noise lev­els from road ve­hi­cles so that re­me­dial ac­tion could be en­forced. Dur­ing the two years since, has any reader seen th­ese de­vices put to use? I cer­tainly haven’t! John L Sheppard
