This article examines the reasons for these pollutions, the laws and regulations in place to address them, and useful coping strategies for lessening their effects on people and communities.

The article starts off by looking at the factors that contribute to these pollutions, such as the widespread use of loud horns and high-powered lighting as well as poor maintenance of vehicles.
