Progress-Bulletin (Newspaper) - June 19, 1970, Pomona, California Vol 86 Number 140 POMONA CALIF EVENING JUNE 19 1970 MM CHP Battling Freeway Noise AP California is trying to hold down the roar on freeways Armed with tiny meters highway patrolmen sit by the road and measure the sound of passing cars and trucks A motorist is either cited or given a warning to make repairs if he's hitting 90 decibels or more That's equivalent to noise in a boiler room or made by a large printing press patrolman neth Spencer says With one of six sound ters in use in California Spencer ami two other officers listen by busy Interstate 5 Two stay at the desk while the third chases down the noisy drivers The crackdown is paying olf after two years say In Sacramento Warren Heath of the fornia Highway PatrolS engineering department says The problem of noisy trucks has been almost cleaned up 1 assure you that the trucking firms are quite aware of us even though the average family motorist may not be yet The truckers often disagree with the officers But when we show them our testing procedures they usually arc convinced said Heath A muffler usually is blamed Heath said We will warn the owner of the trucks and notify the facturer that for example the muffler does not meet our standards The maker will usually dis- agree with our findings and will send his engineers to dispute it No tests or findings arc disputed after the ting methods are explained he says and the manufacturer usually repairs the defective vehicles no cost to the owner A microphone which picks up a vehicle's noise is set 56 feet from the center of a highway and in an area clear for 100 feet on all sides Microphone cords are attached to a control box where the deci- bel readings are made New meters are being de- which don't require the clearance An average of 10 tickets are given out daily The noise level is believed about the same on rable highways throughout the state Last year 600.000 vehicles were clocked in
