Abstract : A noise survey was conducted to determine whether hazardous noise conditions exist within construction, farm, or military vehicles. A check was also made on the basic modes of public transportation: plane, railroad, bus, taxi, and private automobiles. Extreme noise conditions were found in much of the construction and farm equipment. The military design vehicles also showed some situations of extreme noise. The public transportation modes were generally free from any extreme noise conditions. (Author)
