We need to pass aggressive new noise control laws
and implement better enforcement practices. For example,
people using electronic ampifiers in their occupations,
such as rock band members and bartenders, should have
to study an audiology manual, pass an exam, and then
pay a fee to be licensed to use such equipment, since
mis-use of it presents a definite public health hazard.
Revenues from licensing and fines should be used to
pay for the enforcement effort and anti-noise educational
effort. Whatever's left could be used to subsidize hearing
aids for indigent noise victims.
