    Technology to mitigate or remove noise can be applied as follows:

    There are a variety of strategies for mitigating roadway noise including: use of noise barriers, limitation of vehicle speeds, alteration of roadway surface texture, limitation of heavy vehicles, use of traffic controls that smooth vehicle flow to reduce braking and acceleration, and tire design. An important factor in applying these strategies is a computer model for roadway noise, that is capable of addressing local topography, meteorology, traffic operations and hypothetical mitigation. Costs of building-in mitigation can be modest, provided these solutions are sought in the planning stage of a roadway project.

    Aircraft noise can be reduced to some extent by design of quieter jet engines, which was pursued vigorously in the 1970s and 1980s. This strategy has brought limited but noticeable reduction of urban sound levels. Reconsideration of operations, such as altering flight paths and time of day runway use, has demonstrated benefits for residential populations near airports. FAA sponsored residential retrofit (insulation) programs initiated in the 1970s has also enjoyed success in reducing interior residential noise in thousands of residences across the United States.

    Exposure of workers to Industrial noise has been addressed since the 1930s. Changes include redesign of industrial equipment, shock mounting assemblies and physical barriers in the workplace.

    Noise Free America, a national anti-noise pollution organization, regularly lobbies for the enforcement of noise ordinances at all levels of government.

    Do not use car horns unnecessarily. Areas like hospitals and campuses are silence zones and honking is prohibited there.

    Avoid loud music, which hurts your ears and others' ears.

    Firecrackers are extremely loud. So don't try and burn them unnecessarily.

    Motors, machines and vehicles also produce loud noises when not maintained properly. Proper maintenance should be carried out for better performance.

    If you are working in an area where there are loud noises, you must wear earplugs to prevent loss of hearing.

    When going to theme parks and such, avoid riding on the rides which produce a lot of noise. One example is the ATV, which is like a huge motorbike.

    Turn off the engine of your car or motorbike when you are not using it. It stops the annoying hum, and reduces air pollution!

    Better off, walk or cycle to school! It does wonders to the environment, reduces the amount of air pollution and noise, and makes you fit!

    A couple of great ideas would be to make sure your car is properly tuned and has a working muffler and don't play bad music extremely loudly where everyone around you is forced to listen to it too.

    Just do what you can to keep from being personally responsible for it, and wear earplugs.
