NYC Found Another Way To Punish Citizens: Noise Cameras
The State of New York has had several recent initiatives lately that one may argue make them a "nanny" state. Well, of course, New York City has to lead in terms of the surveillance state.
New York City Council is expected to pass a bill on Thursday that facilitates the deployment of “noise cameras” that detect loud vehicles, including those with modified engines as well as motorcycles.
Or in other words, listening devices.
“This bill would establish a noise camera program that would detect motor vehicles exceeding the noise limits under city law. Any vehicle found to be violating such limits would be issued a notice of violation and subject to the civil penalty as prescribed by the existing law,” according to the bill.
According to Forbes, the cameras are designed to be "activated when they detect a noise of 85 decibels or more at a distance of 50 feet or more.”
Fines may range up to a $2,625 fine for repeated offenses, according to AP News.
“We know New York City is the city that never sleeps, but let’s be honest—sometimes we all do need a good night’s sleep,” Councilman Keith Powers and author of the bill said, according to Forbes. “That’s why I’m proud to introduce the ‘Stop Spreading the Noise’ Act, which will significantly reduce excessive noise across all five boroughs and greatly improve our city’s basic quality of life.”
According to AP News, over 70 drivers have been ticketed for violating noise ordinances during the pilot program. The outlet also reported that NYC has one of the “most extensive noise ordinances in the country, setting allowable levels for a host of noisemakers, such as jackhammers and vehicles.”
Nearly 10 years ago, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, launched a “war on noise”, according to Specturm News. He subsequently released dozens of pages dictating things like ice cream trucks and how long a dog can bark without ceasing. According to those rules, a dog is or was allowed to yap for five minutes during the night and 10 during the day.
It is unclear what happens if the dog yaps for 11 minutes.
Out of all the things that Democrats in NYC should be focusing on, they are out there choosing loud cars. That is the problem that must be dealt with.
And is this not the City that NEVER Sleeps? How many people are complaining about loud cars?
That said, loud noises should probably be the least of their worries. But you know, anything to fix noise pollution or whatever.
