Excessively noisy vehicles cause unnecessary disturbance, stress and anxiety to many, finally The Department for Transport (DfT) has earmarked £300,000 to develop technology to target noisy vehicles. Motorists who rev their engines unnecessarily or use illegal exhausts will be targeted in new Government-funded trials. Police already have existing powers, including the ability to issue fines, but currently have trouble gathering evidence, the technology being developed will be trialled across the UK and can automatically detect when vehicles are breaking legal noise requirements. The latest phase of noise trials builds on a three-year programme to perfect the technology.
