Transverse rumble strips (TRSs) is yellow strips installed on roadway to alert the drivers to slow down their vehicles. Some of TRS placed near to premises and compounded noise pollution (Figure 1.1). Despite reducing speed and accidents (Liu et al., 2011), there is very little information on the effect of thermoplastic TRSs installation on traffic noise levels. The only study from Denmark by Bendtsen et al. (2004) reported that two types of thermoplastic with simple profiles which are narrow strips of 10 mm width and 8 mm thickness and strips of 100 mm width and 5 mm thickness, increased the LAeq up to 2.7 dBA when they were hit by vehicles at a speed of 50 km/h. There is large diversity in width, thickness, and profile of TRS currently applied in Asian countries. This chapter investigates the response of resident on the noise produced by traffic when the traffic hit the TRS. Two types of TRSs profile were investigated which were raised rumblers, and middle overlapped rumble strips. Besides, the cause of the complaint were also investigated such that the changing of external noise levels and TRS-tire noise generation mechanisms.
