In some French towns and cities, the noise level of motorcycles will be measured by a new breed of safety cameras. — AFP Relaxnews

A noise camera targeting the loudest motorcycles will be officially inaugurated on Tuesday, Jan 4 in Saint-Lambert-des-Bois in France’s Yvelines region, west of Paris. The idea is to identify the owners of vehicles exceeding a certain tolerated noise threshold, particularly due to modified exhaust pipes. In the future, offenders could face a fine.

France is about to try out its first noise cameras in a bid to combat noise pollution from vehicles. Note that this decision forms part of France’s Mobility Orientation Law (loi d’orientation des mobilités), passed in 2019.
