Tobago Noise Pollution - Fight noise pollution in T&T - Trinis are some of the noisiest people on the planet from the way they talk on the streets, blowing their horn, playing their music so loud that the speakers need repairs and so on. There is no respect for peace.
Comments: I am tired, just sick & tired of calling the Point Fortin & Cap de Ville Police stations about the man across the road playing loud, obscene, violent & vulgar 'music' but no one ever comes!A Constable Victor today asked me over the phone if I made a report to the EMA, I replied by telling yes I did, but they are doing nothing, you all are doing nothing; What do you all expect me to do? I am exhausted & tired of trying to get something done about this! There are sick old people in the houses around, including mines! The police tell me to bring him up in court, I had to ask them if they gonna provide 24/7 protection for myself & family if I do that & they could not answer! The police service is a complete waste!
Comments: I can only sympathize with you. I live on a street with mostly older, sickly folks. Folks who have given their everything to the community. Amongst the homes, there are a few young families. One has a teenager with a motor bike. He races around the block every evening with his bike making the loudest possible sounds. It disturbs the dogs and the peaceful evening atmosphere. Then there is an amateur mechanic who fixes cars on the road side The cars race their engines at all times of the day. Some of the elderly suffer from dementia. One has a stroke. Two others have heart issues and one family has a member with terminal cancer. There is no peaceful moments anymore. We are now just an emptied vessel society- making only noise.
Comments: Noise pollution has its effect when you grow older and start suffering from diseases such as tinnitus or other ear problems. It is pointless telling young people about these diseases and how excessive continuous noise is usually the cause of all of these annoying psychical problems .Elsewhere in the world most authorities are trying their best to stop citizens from making excess noise that in the end cost the state health service millions of dollars. Here however, the like the writer says, we are just an empty vessel society making a lot of noise.It is no wonder that most of our politicians have already gone deaf.,and perhaps even blind as the impression given is that they don't seem to observe what ordinary people write or say here.
