#1023: CloseDin

Today’s invention is a way to reduce the noise nuisance caused by ‘cruising’ cars with loud music systems.

It is an automatic volume control which turns down one’s in-car entertainment in correspondence with a combination of factors: a) the degree to which the windows are open b) the lateness of the hour c) the proximity of hospitals and nursing homes d) the slowness with which the car is being driven.


When the volume or any of the latter four factors is sensed to be on the increase, then the windows automatically close tightly.

If some young person wants to drive fast during daylight with the windows rolled up and miles from anywhere then they are welcome to ‘pump up the volume’ -otherwise I decline to share their taste in audio.
