Noise equipment to tackle anti-social driving

Dear Resident,

Your neighbourhood officers have been trained up to use noise equipment to help tackle anti-social motorists in the area.

The sound monitoring equipment kits will alert them at the roadside if an exhaust is too loud.

The legal limit for cars is 80 decibels and it is illegal to modify an exhaust to be louder than this.

Motorists could be given a £50 Fixed Penalty Notice for either failure to maintain the system or use of a vehicle with an altered system or excessive noise.

If anti-social driving is a concern for you, report it to us online.

Kind Regards,

Inspector Colin Norden

Huntingdonshire Neighbourhood Policing Team
