    What about loud horns, is that not noise pollution to the public, there was an effort some time ago to reduce the number of horns on a bus, cannot the minister hear this

    The minister will not hear any outside sound because he is using air conditioned luxurious vehicle,Air conditioned House and air conditioned office room

    It will not work. The private bus operators are like the mafia. They are so powerful that makes it difficult for the authorities to monitor.

    Classical Music?

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Wednesday, 25 December 2019 08:21 AM

    A positive step. But why not have no music at all? Loud classical music could be just as much a nuisance as loud pop.

    Noise pollution is every where. from Ice cream seller to temples. There is a Supreme court ruling to warn such people and if continued confesicate the equipments. Do our law enforcement do theier solaman duty?

    you mentioned temples but the most noise comes from mosques that too 5 times a day.

    Very good decision if implemented and maintain properly.

    Good move sir, today morning I reached colombo with disappointment due to loud music.This should be implemented.

    We always hear of decisions made to start on January 1st. Sadly these never happen or even if these do, forgotten very soon. Let's see if this is something different!

    Heard this story 99 times and the music is getting louder and louder.

    ban altogether all sound(audio) in buses - idiots allow now classical music! classic brains of our stupid politicians

    Too little too late. Most likely most Sri Lankans are deaf to higher frequencies by now.
