Sv: Risker i trafiken

Som komplement till tidigare inlägg - från European Federation for Transport and Environment:

Close to half of all Europeans are regularly exposed to traffic noise levels that are potentially dangerous to health, a new study has found.

Noise from rail and road transport is linked to 50,000 fatal heart attacks every year and 200,000 cases of cardio-vascular disease in the EU according to the new research published today by T&E.

Nina Renshaw, noise policy officer at T&E said: "This research shows that the lack of decent regulation combined with increased traffic and a trend towards bigger, more powerful and noisier vehicles is literally proving to be a lethal combination for Europeans."
