Traffi c is the predominant source of this noise and chiefl y affects the territory of Nantes: of the 16 % of inhabitants exposed to a level L den > 65 dBA over 24 hours, 77 % live in Nantes, and of the 4 % of inhabitants exposed at night-time to a level Ln > 60 dBA, 98 % are from Nantes. Environmental noise pollution is a complex issue.

The previous chapters in this book illustrate the multifarious nature of issues surrounding the understanding and control of sound that is out of place.
