D.C. Considers Noise Reduction Cameras

(Washington, DC) — D.C. lawmakers are looking to put a lid on noise in certain neighborhoods in the District. Council is set to consider the Vehicular Noise Reduction Act which is aimed at curtailing noise on D.C. streets. The law would help identify and repair noisy vehicles while creating a noise camera program to fine offenders. The proposed legislation would place two noise reduction cameras in each ward in the District, each with signage alerting drivers to the devices. The measure proposes test driving the cameras for a few years to see how effective they are in reducing noise on D.C. streets.
