The answer to this question, most scientists, environmentalists etc., would say yes. Nowadays, people who drive vehicles just don’t care about the people around them and the earth itself being affected. According to a survey conducted by a few news channels recently report that most people honk as they find it entertaining and use it as a medium to express their impatience. The question still remains…what does the government or the citizens of India do to stop the honking mania? In answer to this the Mumbai police broke the ice by enforcing a rule on 7th April ’08 that no citizen should honk in Mumbai unless he/she wanted to loose a five-hundred or a thousand rupee note. Don’t you think this is a good way to avoid the ill-effects caused by the noise pollution like headaches, loosening of hearing capacity, impatience, accidents, short & hot temperedness etc? In my opinion, it should be practiced in other cities of India as well and should be passed as a law that honking must be avoided and used only if it is essential. Don’t you think so?
