Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Air Pollution

Air pollution is caused by unnecessary noise fumes and chemicals produced in the air. In most cases air is polluted by dangerous fumes from indstries and big factories. In the other hand it is also polluted by vehicle which play loud music and hooting all the time everywhere even when necessary. The kenyan government has tried its best to ensure that air pollution is minimized especially in busy places like towns cities and in parliament. To control this they introduced laws which govern vehicles as the road. For example when to hoot how many passengers to carry and stop playing loud music. By now i can see some changes by comparing the modern vehimcles and the olden ones the michuki laws have made the noise in the roads to be reduced ever though some still continue
