This essay seeks to explain the problem of traffic noise in the US. The essay establishes the major causes of traffic noise in the city of Washington DC and the impacts it has on the population. It also seeks measurers that are being employed by the responsible bodies in mitigation the problem.
From this research I learnt that traffic noise is one of the major air pollutants in the US. Also I learnt that traffic noise is a chronic problem in US. While many actions are being taken to avert it, many gaps still exist in fully dealing with the problem. I never thought tat this could be such a big problem for a developed nation like US.
While doing this research I discovered that is wad difficult to find materials with specific information. I had to apply borrow from general materials. Also, I discovered that most of the sources were quite old and the language used was casual.
However, I found the topic to be very interesting. The topic seemed to give me incites into what I thought was a minor problem. It was also simple to handle the topic because it talks about something that is visible or which can be easily quantified.
I have been a victim of traffic jam and traffic noise is something that has affected me. I could also connect well with the topic because I use the highways quite often. I was curious about understanding the impact of traffic noise as I am a regular road user. The essay is flowing and ideas in it are well articulated.
