Noise-detecting cameras roll out in France

France has become the first country to roll out cameras that will flash and fine motorists whose vehicles exceed specific noise levels. The Meduse cameras are equipped with a microphone and a camera, and if a passing vehicle exceeds a certain decibel, the camera is activated, and a €135 fine is issued.

The cameras have been trialled in various countries across Europe, but our French neighbours have become the first nation to implement them on a wider scale. The first noise camera will be deployed on Rue 46 in Saint-Lambert-des-Bois close to Paris, with Bron, Nice, Paris, Rueil-Malmaison, Saint-Forget, Toulouse and Villeneuve-le Roi following shortly after.

The cameras won’t issue any fines for the moment as officials are still deciding where to cap the acceptable limit. But despite the brief grace period, it’s clear that noise cameras are here to stay, and with the French beginning to roll them out on a wider scale, chances are it won’t be long before we start seeing them further afield.
