In Paris, test the "noise radar", penalizing too loud cars

The new system appeared in the suburbs of Paris, in the Villeneuve-le-Roi area. It represents four

microphones that detect the sound source and the control unit, using CCTV cameras, finds a car that is too noisy.

How many radars will there be?

The main part of the devices (40 units) is located near various institutions in the entertainment areas of the city, and another 17 - near large buildings.

Why and when to wait?

The main purpose of testing is to determinethe usefulness of the technology and identify the main noise levels that lead to fines. However, people with charged cars will not be so sweet. This fall there will be a vote for the bill on the full introduction of noise radars into operation.
