Fight noise pollution in T&T
Right to Quiet , is the website for Trinbagonians who treasure their rights to peaceful surroundings and are ready to defend them. It is time to make noise about noise, and to change the system as it is in this country.
Well this ought to be real good. I am not trying to be negative, but it is definitely going to be hard.You have to put an end to what I call speakers on wheels,yup the Maxi Taxi's they blast music regardless of the hour and then they have those very irritating and very unappealing horns that make some weird noises.
If you can get rid of that then the rest should be easy. I hope you guys are triumphant in you battle with the noise monster.

What about construction workers? As I am writing this my head is about to explode and my ears are hurting me. I live in an apartment and the landlady is having work done ALL OVER THE PLACE, the amount of noise is unbearable and I have two kids listening to all this (one is just a baby). I am concerned that this noise will affect his hearing in the future.
The landlady says she cannot do anything about it which means she does not care at all because she is NOT listening to this. What are the laws concerning noise pollution in Trinidad?
Comments: We currently are experiencing a morbid noise pollution problem in main road Chaguanas. It is generated my the night club - Club India, and also a Bar formerly known as Traxx Bar. The noise pollution is awful to say the least.
Comments: The law in this T&T sucks real bad right now we are experiencing loud noise from [..] Villas Restaurant & Bar in Aranguez this bar is in a side street a residential area we the residents have made several complaints to the EMA got no satisfaction this goes on till 3-4am the next morning everyday.
Noise is part of the culture. Just look at Carnival, the louder the better right? Then there are fetes which doesn't require soft music. People on the street are also generally very loud. A person sees someone they know and immediately shouts out at them even if you are near to them and you pay the price of ringing ears. I don't see this changing anytime soon. People here do not hold manners very high as I've seen both classes do this. What I know is if you want to avoid noise you pretty much have to look for a quiet area to live in and even still some neighbour will want to have a fete in their house and for at least a few times in the year you lose some sleep.
