Apathy to noise pollution

Great piece in the Gazette by Al Seymour (who often writes good pieces, by the way) the other day about noise pollution in Bermuda.

We have to deal with traffic noise (which is amplified by the over-loud stereos in some cars - we get it, you're compensating for something), someone digging up the road to lay something (and a month later, digging it up again to lay something else), and the occasional construction job.

Some of it is supposedly illegal (namely the vehicle engine noise and loud music), but nobody in a position of authority can be bothered to do anything about it.

And unfortunately, with apologies - the pun is already known - this article is doomed to go in one ear and out the other.
