Holy crap. Noise pollution? In Spain!? What's next, jail time for bears shitting in the woods?
The hilarious (well maybe not for the owner) part was that the noise levels were measured to be a whole 43.7 decibels. Enough to cause severe psychological problems (as claimed by the neighbors)?
Here's a table to help you out:
|50 dBA||Refrigerator at 1 m distance, bird twitter outside at 15 m distance|
|45 dBA||Noise of normal living; talking, or radio in the background|
|43.7 dBA||Go to jail for five years|
|40 dBA||Distraction when learning or concentration is possible|
|35 dBA||Very quiet room fan at low speed at 1 m distance|
|25 dBA||Sound of breathing at 1 m distance|
|0 dBA||Auditory threshold|
Does this mean five years in the big house for my neighbors with the annoying yapping dog?
