In a new move, the Sharjah Police has initiated the installment of radars that detect high levels of noise, thus aiming to curb disturbances caused in residential areas.
The radars have the capacity to detect decibels of the cars that pass in its vicinity, thus making both audio and video clips that will hone on to those who violate the rules. The motorists who exceed 95 decibels will have to choke up Dh 2000 and will also be given 12 black point. Moreover, their vehicles may also be confiscated for up to 6 months.
The radars were officially inaugurated by Major General Saif Ziri Al Shamsi, Sharjah Police Commander in Chief in the presence of Lieutenant Colonel Mohammad Alai Al Naqbi, Director of Traffic and Patrol Department and Colonel Rashid Al Fardan, Head of Traffic Engineering Department.
The installation of the devices will cut down on noise violations, with the authorities looking to set up more of them across the city.
