Might be one approach. Some have said they are the ones who "should have been shot in the cradle"  (Jun 16, 2014 | post #5)

Honestly what does it matter, we can't get enough advance notice as with other disasters, and the science of predicting them is in it's infancy at best!  (Jun 13, 2014 | post #2)

Springfield man dies in crash along Hwy 20

Hwy 20 is a very dangerous corridor in addition to the already serious risk of it being a two way road, there are distracted drivers, and some driving around with their bass amped up so strong they can't hear anything outside their vehicles! For an example of what we are talking about see http://bit.ly/1kCU Hm7 Please fee free to Fw. this Heavy Bass Awareness Page link to all law enforcement, media, elected officials and schools around the country it's time to raise awareness about this deadly distraction once and for all!  (Mar 16, 2014 | post #1)

Does Loud Sub Sonic Sub Woofers in vehicles Disturb your ...

We are contact with the local authorities on this issue and would like to get an idea from other residents in the Corvallis area as well as the Benton County area who use Topix if this is something that bothers you, Thank you for your help. Before you vote please keep this in mind. According to musician and founder of the Rochester Soundscape Society, James Kaufman, "that some people can just hear these lows “better” than others. There are quite a few studies that show how much variation there is between different people's ears. For example, 10 percent of 50-60-year-olds will hear bass tones that are 10-12 dB softer than the average folks in their age group. ** Here's how this might work in real life: ten people are sitting in a room together. A boom car passes by a block away. Most everyone can hear it, but just barely, and there is likely a person or two who cannot detect it at all. But chances are, that one person heard it long before everyone else did, and will continue to hear it until it is about four blocks away and during the course of an hour, most of those people will notice a few passing violations, while that one person may only experience a few precious moments of NOT hearing a boom car. So, while boom cars are passing annoyances for some, they are relentless torment for a significant minority. In a low-tech society, these “good-eared” people may have been valued as tribe-members that could provide early warnings of danger. Yet, these sensitive ears can seem like a curse in today's societies where there is no escape from technologically produced thumping. "We are dealing with a profoundly different kind of sound here–artificial bass so pure and muffled that you rarely find it in nature. And when you do, it usually signals something dangerous, like an earthquake, or a tsunami. Natural acoustic low sounds are always accompanied by higher waves, called overtones. But many of the bass tones emitted from boom-cars have little or none of this higher component. It is such a foreign sound to us that we have no good words to describe it. “Loud” doesn't quite do it even when it is powerful. Strong low-frequency sound has always signaled danger, and this might be why it produces stress reactions in our bodies and minds." I can tell you that I am that 1 out of 10 people, the question is how many other 1 out of thousands of residents in the area who are being affected, unless you take a poll it will be hard to say if there are any, they could just be suffering silently. If you wish to read more here is a link to this paper http://www.noiseof f.org/document/bas s.victims.not.alon e.pdf Bearing this in mind, you may understand why not everyone complains about these vehicles unless they are right next to them, but the low frequency does penetrate walls and closed windows and does disturb the peace and security of one's home. Driving by a residence with a system that can be felt more than heard is not only downright rude, it's illegal in most cities and states. While this was being typed 2-3 of these vehicles went by my home here in Corvallis and I did not hear any music only felt pounding thumping bass.  (Feb 26, 2014 | post #1)
