Education plays a big role in our lives. We are being educated to learn and apply what we've learned in our daily lives. But with distractions, such as noise, a person may not be concentrated in studying. "According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, ambient noise affects people’s health by increasing general stress levels and aggravating stress-related conditions. Continued exposure does not lead to habituation; in fact, the effects worsen". The stress caused by noise may decrease higher brain function, impairing memory and learning.

To solve this problem, the drivers of vehicles of passing by the school must not blow their horns while they pass by the school. The authorities must also encourage these drivers to doing so by displaying signage outside the school that says 'School Zone, No Blowing of Horns'.

By reducing noise outside the school, students may concentrate studying and it may cause them to increase their productivity while inside the school.
