Honking The Biggest Cause For Noise Pollution in Hyderabad

For years, it has been known that Hyderabadis have a lesser traffic sense when compared to metropolitan cities. High decibel and frequent horn blowing by vehicles in the city has been a major source of noise pollution in both residential and commercial areas.


The excessive honking from the steady flow of vehicles is tough on the ears and frazzles the nerves of residents of twin cities. Though the traffic police have started to strictly enforce laws against using horns without permission, nothing is being done when it comes to excessive horn blowing. Incidentally, traffic police booked more than 3300 cases for unauthorized horns last month alone.


According to one netizen, when she tweeted to the traffic police about the issue of honking, the police are said to have told her that they could not stop honking. Despite all complaints, no action is being taken with regards to excessive horn blowing.


Another resident of Hyderabad, who happens to be a writer and commutes regularly, claims that everyone in the city honks excessively and needlessly, especially the cab drivers. “Many drivers on the road appear to find enjoyment in honking loudly and continuously. Unfortunately, it appears to be unchecked.


Meanwhile, Salauddin, the founder and president of Telangana Gig and Platform Union Workers (TGPWU), said the union was running a campaign to inform drivers and delivery personnel to refrain from using their horns excessively. He says that both cab drivers and delivery boys are under intense pressure to deliver on time. Also, since the 10-minute delivery has begun, the pressure on them has grown, he shares.


According to Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB), all residential, commercial, and sensitive locations have noise pollution over the maximum allowable range. It has been observed that car honking is the biggest cause of noise pollution in the city.


Traffic management zones with strict sound restrictions, coupled with keeping the volume of vehicle horns down to some extent, will minimize the hazard of noise pollution, feel many residents. It has to be noted that in most countries outside the Indian sub-continent, people barely beep their horns.
