ok glad to hear that you are not really blaming anybody is what I just found on noise pollution

The noise made by cars has been under control since 1929 when the Motor Cars (Excessive Noise) regulations were introduced. Since 1973 new cars have to meet Europe-wide noise limits. These have been reduced from 82 decibels in 1976 to the current limit of 74 dB. This means it would take seven new vehicles to make the same amount of noise as a vehicle that just meets the pre-1976 limits.

Off-road vehicles are allowed to be 1dB louder, as are direct injection diesels.

Life is too short...laugh and enjoy it while you are able to

'24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I Think not !!
