Hungarian Scientific Association for Transport (KTE) made a survey at a popular Hungarian summer festival, which highlighted the risk of using a mobile phone while driving. Nowadays not only the voice calls, but the written messages are growing risk factors too. 1/5 of the respondents usually send SMS, e-mails and other kind of messages while driving. The low-budget risk prevention video clip was made in 2004 by KTE and it turned out a success.
A recent assessment of the burden of disease from noise by the World Health Organization (WHO) confirms that traffic noise is a major cause of environmental health problems. In cities, and near main roads and railways, traffic is the major contributor to noise levels. At present, some 210 million Europeans are regularly exposed to road traffic noise levels exceeding 55 decibels and 35 million are exposed to these levels of rail noise, pursuant to recent studies. Health impacts frequently occur above this level, according to the WHO and the EU.
