Pequenos "efeitos colaterais" da ditadura do automóvel X

MC, 04.03.08
Noise from rail and road transport is linked to 50,000 fatal heart attacks every year and 200,000 cases of cardio-vascular disease in the EU, de acordo com um estudo da European Federation for Transport & Environment.
Uns 135 mortos por dia apenas devido ao ruído dos transportes!

The study estimates that the full costs to society, including costs to health services, of traffic noise pollution are at least EUR 40 billion per year.

Children exposed to high levels of traffic noise have been shown to suffer from difficulty concentrating; difficulty sustaining attention; difficulty remembering complex issues and poorer reading and general school performance. Costs to business include sick days and lower productivity of staff.
