Health groups disappointment on EP noise vote
Today, the European Parliament has shown a depressing lack of commitment when it comes to improving the quality of life and health of European citizens. The majority of MEPs regretably put the interest of noisy car makers ahead of their constituencies’ health, despite solid evidence on how current noise levels in Europe harm our health.
Health groups including HEAL and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) and sustainable transport group Transport and Environment (T&E) and have all expressed their disappointment today.

Ahead of the vote, HEAL produced a briefing outlining our concerns and health evidence on EU vehicle noise emission standards. HEAL Briefing available here
