OPINION: NYC Bill Needs To Be Introduced In Minnesota Now
If there's one thing I can't stand about consultants, it's the, "what works HERE should definitely work THERE" policy. Sure, talking nonstop about sports in a market that regularly appears (and often win) in championship games will work in that market, but Minnesota is a little...uh, not that.
I'm on board with this, though.
A bill in New York City (gittarope) seeks to introduce "noise cameras". What the actual heck are "noise cameras"?
They're cameras that activate if a vehicle's noise reaches 85 decibels from 50 feet away.
Time to patch up your s**tbox.
Why Do We Need Noise Cameras?
The bill is in response to the ever-rising number of noise complaints about loud vehicles. It doesn't separate the rusty loud vehicles from the loud vehicles driven by guys birthnamed Rusty.
There's really nothing like being out for a peaceful walk only to be interrupted by a dingus driving a vehicle with an exhaust system that can be best described as "cosmetic only". Or perhaps it's 2am on a Tuesday and the world is sleeping, except for Greg in his Civic that's decked-out with an amplified-kazoo exhaust.
In either case: sorry 'bout your d*ck, bro.
Fines for violations start at $800 for a first offense, with a third (you really should've gotten this taken care of by now) offense costing you $2,625.
It'll likely pass in NYC, and I think it should be brought up in Minnesota.
Right after they pass a bill regulating LED headlight brightness and aim.
