Quezon 4th District Representative Angelina Tan’s proposed bill to ban videoke or karaoke machines when they “cause unnecessary disturbance to the public within residential areas” is gaining ground in the House of Representatives.

This after the committee on public order and safety approved the creation of a technical working group (TWG) to deliberate the measure.

The Quezon politiko’s House Bill No. 1035 seeks seeks to tackle noise pollution and unnecessary disturbances to the public produced by sound amplifying equipment in residential areas.

“Noise causes difficulty in conversations. It interferes with sleep and negatively impacts certain kinds of work. As a source of stress, it can promote high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems as well as nervous disorders,” Tan said.

“The making or creation of excessive, unnecessary or unusually loud sounds from videoke/karaoke systems or other amplified audio devices beyond limits and at unacceptable levels during unholy hours causes serious discomfort and has created numerous complains and public condemnation as they are detrimental to public health, comfort, convenience, safety, welfare, and prosperity of the general public,” she added.
