The alarm and message continuously loop at safe sound levels per nationally recognized standards. The sound starts out faint and increases the closer you get to the truck. As a driver passes the truck on the highway, they will briefly (less than one second) hear the device at volumes as loud as a hair dryer with your windows up or police siren with your windows down.
