Eight French municipalities are going to experiment with radars capable of identifying two wheels exceeding the authorized sound level. Ultimately, the goal is to be able to verbalize offenders.
Some municipalities will experiment from thenext anti-radar supposed to detect and identify the noisiest two-wheelers. If it will be a question of initially, the first verbalizations could fall as early as 2022.
A first experiment will take place in 8 cities, including Paris, Nice and Toulouse. This initiative follows an amendment adopted in the framework of the mobility orientation bill, which authorizes the establishment of a period of experimentation before being able to control and, if necessary, sanction.

To save these who is at the origin. Equipped with a 360-degree camera and four microphones, this radar ” Can therefore in theory identify vehicles with excessive noise levels, including at night, by reading their license plate. Already deployed in the Paris region since 2019 for the first tests, they will therefore be used for a larger experiment at the national level, which should last from November 2021 to April 2022. Then comes the time for verbalization., a special radar has been developed. This is

As a reminder, each recent model of motorized two-wheeler does indeed have a maximum authorized sound level listed on its vehicle registration document, expressed in. The first targets are obviously all those who have tampered with their , starting with the unclamping of the exhaust, which is completely illegal. Note that some too noisy could also be in the crosshairs of the authorities.
