What is Noise Pollution?
The agents and staff at the Bob Korvas Agency Inc. are glad you asked. There is no easy definition of noise pollution because it changes to each’s discernment.
What is noise to one can be soothing sounds to another? Pollution is when something becomes an irritant. With waste products that infiltrate our air, water or environment it much easier to classify and define. Noise, however, is not a tangible object.
On a spring day, a couple of neighborhood kids playing basketball at a corner home in the culde-sac and the noise that event elicits can be categorized as noise pollution to someone who doesn’t want to hear children playing. Birds chirping in the trees can be noise pollution to someone who is irritated by the sounds of spring.
Though it is not easily defined doesn’t mean that attempts have not been made by authorities in Niles, IL and all over the country. There are ordinances in place to define noise pollution. There are categories and decibel levels that must be reached before the police can be called in to have your neighbor turn down the music at their barbecue.
Consideration is key to living peaceably with your neighbors. In addition to considering your neighbor’s circumstances surrounding their noise contribution, communication is critical to that consideration.
