The big advantage of lorries is their flexibility. Compared to other means of transport like ships or trains though, they have several disadvantages: high energy consumption, exhaust fume emissions and noise. The lorry is a loud road user, reaching about 90 decibels on a noise level scale. In this case, apart from the noise of the engine, we can hear the release of hydraulic pressure.
