They are cracking down on noisy cars in Barrie, Ontario, via Project Noisemaker. Police are handing out $85 fines to people with cars that violate the noise bylaws. Yay, I say. (Though one wonders why they are using police officers? Perhaps they could be replaced with civilians, paid for with re-allocated police funding?)
England has started setting up noise camerasto track noisy vehicles. I have not seen any reports on how that is working out.
AND – we have to also try to figure out WHY people like these noisy cars so much? What is the appeal? Anyone got ideas?
