Noise pollution is constantly on the rise in urban areas, and is becoming a major concern for residents, as it not only disturbs privacy, sleep and in some cases health. Un-necessary sources of noise should be eliminated.
Backing up beeping devices fitted on lorried, and vans are a major source of noise pollution in urban areas. Some of them are even talking (very loud), with the noise traveling hundreds of yards. I presume there must be a law or regulation forcing their installation. This must be stopped.
