The applicant alleged that as a result of an increase in a toll on a private roadway near his home, heavy traffic on his street had greatly increased, and that the noise, pollution and smell from the traffic had made his home almost uninhabitable.  The European Court of Human Rights agreed that the Hungarian authorities' failure to take measures to keep the noise level below statutory limits violated its obligations under Article 8.
