A company based in Edmonton, AB called Street Noise Reduction Systems has invented a system that identifies loud vehicles as they drive by and videotapes them.
The Noise Snare is a portable system that mounts to a vehicle and can be placed in problem neighbourhoods to catch loud offenders. The system can either send a warning to the vehicle’s owner via text message or email, or the footage can be used by authorites to ticket the offending vehicles.
It’s not clear if the data gathered by the Noise Snare will hold up in court because the noise level registered is not captured according to the SAE J2825 sound test developed in the U.S. and adopted by the city of Edmonton.
According to Gizmag, Calgary will begin testing the Noise Snare this summer. The video below was captured by the Noise Snare.
