OT: Noise Control

Paris has switched on its first noise radar as part of a plan to fine loud motorcycles and other vehicles in one of Europe’s noisiest cities.

The machine placed high on a street lamp-post in the 20th district in eastern Paris is able to measure the noise level of moving vehicles and to identify their licence plate.

“Too much noise makes people sick,” said David Belliard, the Paris deputy mayor. “For our health and quality of life … this first sound radar’s aim is to automatically issue fines for vehicles that makes too much noise.”

In the next few months the city will test whether the radar can accurately identify the number plates of roaring motorcycles or cars, after which the equipment will have to be officially approved by authorities by the end of 2022.
