Like many axe grinders, Sandy McMillan is happy to distort facts to suit his argument.
There is no legal limit of 80-85dB, otherwise the sound of lorries travelling along Lochside or even people snoring would be illegal, and the crew of the fire engine would be locked up for sounding their siren.
As a sound engineer who qualified more years ago than I would like to admit to, I will not bore everyone with weighting networks, bandwidths and peak amplitudes.
Instead – to use a technical term – Sandy is speaking the very essense of sh***.
