We’ve all came across that one annoying guy that likes to blast music into his ears through his headphones, oblivious to everyone else on the street. It’s about time someone put a stop to that!
There’s a new program in New York that will regulate loud music on the streets of the city. Along with the mayor, Michael Bloomberg, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene wants to “better inform and educate New Yorkers about ways to protect hearing from exposure to loud sounds.” This does sound logical because even if you really like your favorite song in 2013, you’ll want to be able hear your favorite song in 2050.
In addition to this, it is kind of rude to have your music way too loud. There are many people with headphones out there and it’s only going to create chaos if you can’t hear anything.
