1. Reduce the use of vehicle horns: Vehicle horns create a lot of noise pollution. Avoid honking unnecessarily and when required use low tone horns.
2. Implement sound barriers: Sound barriers or acoustic barriers are structures designed to block or reduce the level of noise from one area to another.
3. Plant trees: Planting trees around residential areas can act as natural sound absorbers and help to reduce noise pollution.
4. Install sound systems: Installing sound systems in outdoor spaces that produce low-level background music and other sound effects can help to reduce overall noise levels.
5. Implement quiet zones: Establishing designated quiet zones where sound levels are regulated can help to reduce noise pollution in public areas.
6. Regulate construction sites: Strict regulations should be in place to control the noise levels produced by construction sites.
7. Promote the use of electric vehicles: Electric vehicles produce less noise than combustion engine vehicles and thus can help to reduce noise pollution.
