Loud Harley Davidson motorcycles may start receiving tickets with new "sound cameras"

One of the most pressing qualities of life issues in our ward is noise pollution caused by motorcycles (ie. Harley Davidsons) or vehicles that have been illegally modified to amplify the sound of their engines. Lawmakers in Chicago have attempted to address this issue by establishing firm legal grounds for enforcement and by working with police departments to crack down on offenders. New technology is being tested to combat excessive motorcycle noise with a device called "sound cameras" that can take noise readings and automatically issue a ticket just like the red light cameras.
