Sound Cameras Give Tickets to Loud Car Stereos

Those loud subwoofers may soon get you a ticket via an automated system that is a marriage of red-light cameras and noise sensors. A New South Wales company has turned technology developed for the Australian Navy into a ticketing system that can target drivers with thumping stereos, loud exhausts or who may be too heavy on the horn. The system is tied together via Wi-Fi and can hold a 10-second video and audio clip of 10,000 perpetrators before the on-board hard drive runs out of space. The automated cameras that capture red light violations can be a major source of ticketing income for cities and the addition of noise violators is an untapped revenue stream.
