  Right. What you are thinking of is something equivalent to the seatbelt 
laws which require drivers to wear seatbelts to protect themselves from 
injury. In this case the laws would protect the boom-car drivers from 
hearing damage and, at the same time, the health and sanity of all those 
within earshot.
