Cause: Rubber dust from belt wear bonds to belt grooves. Drop in belt tension (worn automatic belt tensioner). Belt misalignment. High torsional vibrations (diesel engines).
Solution: Check tensioner for wear or excessive belt vibration and replace if necessary. Replace belt if there is a chirp or other belt noise.

This punishment places a great deal of stress on the car belt(s), which will eventually wear out.
