Suggestions for ruffling the Noise feathers

1) Call 131 555 to report any noisy truck, noisy mufflers, noisy braking. Be sure to list their license, when and where it was.

2) Call the company listed on the carriages of the truck to report bad driving i.e. too fast, being a bully, endangering lives etc. Report when and where.

3) Write to: Hon. Carl Skully MP
Minister for Roads
Level 36 Governor MacQuarie Tower
1 Farrer Place
Sydney, NSW 2000

ask him to support the introduction of EEC noise standards (supporting the new ADR83/00 covering vehicle noise standards) with addition of a standard for engine braking. 83% of all trucks in Australia were built prior to '95 and therefore are very noisy. Europe's trucks are considerably quieter and these parts are importable to Australia.

4) Could we plant a long string of clumping bamboo along our highway?
