This petition had 23 supporters

Noise  is generally used as an unwanted sound, or sound which produces unpleasant effects and discomfort on the ears. Sound becomes unwanted when it either interferes with normal activities such as sleeping, conversation, or disrupts or diminishes one's quality of life. Though not all noise can be called noise pollution , the sound created by loud speakers at odd times are definitely tend to disturb the quality of life. 

Health effects of noise include anxiety and stress reaction and in extreme cases fright. The physiological manifestations are headaches, irritability and nervousness, feeling of fatigue and decreases work efficiency. For example, being pounded by the siren of fire fighters, police or ambulance in your city all night everyday leave people (especially elderly people) stresses and tired in the morning.

Its is worth noting that these effects may not sound troubling, but the truth is, with time, the consequences can be very worrying.

Let's all come together to sign this petition to make our country stress free and sound pollution free. In the present day rat race, we surely deserve peace of mind. Hope, you all agree and unite to defend our right to stay healthy and peaceful. Thanks.
