The Problem with Vehicle Soundproofing

Friday, March 26th, 2010

While we’re all for greater cabin soundproofing in vehicles we do recognize the need for safety in all aspects of our lives. In an article we recently read, the Ada Evening News addressed an issue of great concern – drivers with their windows up and radios on not paying attention to emergency personnel.

They don’t hear sirens approaching from behind – they drive too fast around accident scenes – and they’re simply not paying attention. If you see an accident on a major highway you should be slowing down – to somewhere around 10 miles an hour. There are people there, on the streets, trying to help others.

Soundproofing is great for reducing engine noise but don’t be stupid. Pay attention to what’s going on around you while you drive.
