Use of horns with jarring sounds, motorbikes with damaged exhaust pipes, noisy trucks to be banned.
Noise producing industries, airports, bus and transport terminals and railway stations to sighted far from where living places.
Community law enforcers should check the misuse of loudspeakers, worshipers, outdoor parties and discos, as well as public announcements systems.
