Taiwan's noise pollution dilemma


Noise has always been a part of life in Taiwan, especially during its rapid industrialisation from the 1960s to 1990s.

But in recent years, people have become less tolerant of it.

The number of complaints has risen by 15% a year, to some 58,000 last year, according to the government's Environmental Protection Administration (EPA).

That has forced the EPA to recently announce plans to toughen regulations.
