Silence the Horns is a citizen-led project
working to address the use of horn sounds
with remote vehicle lock signaling and other
acoustic signals, prompts, and warnings.|
The project goal aligns with automakersí
sustainability and environmental policies.
Silence the Horns challenges automakers
to incorporate consideration of the impacts
of preventable noise in vehicle design.
We challenge SAE International to establish
ALARA standards in signaling, and NADA to
create standards for educating consumers.
Access to relative quiet benefits sleep,
reduces stress, and has restorative qualities.
All vehicles can be designed to function
without using horn sounds indiscriminately,
because it has unintended effects on people,
especially impacting attention and sleep.
