Noise radars could be installed to catch motorcycles
Motorcyclists riding noisy bikes could soon find themselves targeted.
A test by the motoring organization, the TCS, has determined it’s how the machine is ridden that's the main problem – not illegal modifications.
The Federal Environment Office wants to crack down on noise as it can make people sick – and annoys millions of others.
Authorities are examining different ways to tackle the issue, including a crackdown on modified exhausts and an idea to make the fitting of a noise meter on bikes compulsory.
They’re also testing a new noise radar developed in Germany. The first device has been set up in Solothurn. If it proves successful it could be rolled out across the country.
