Individual noise measurements were obtained for 10,500 motor vehicles operating on Kentucky highways. The roadways were selected to represent various geometric and environmental conditions and posted speed limits. Percentages of automobiles and trucks exceeding a given noise level were determined. As expected, noise levels of trucks were significantly higher than those for automobiles, and larger trucks produced higher noise levels than smaller trucks. For any vehicle type, noise increased as speed limit increased.
