Experiment since 2022, in certain cities in France, this new type of radar will issue its first tickets in a few months.

The increase in the number of radars in France slowed down in 2023. Barely 200 more machines were added. installed on the territory but the "park" has largely been renewed with increasingly powerful devices. Among the new radars, a few should particularly attract your attention. Some motorists already have them. crossed since they were tested experimentally for several months in 2022 in seven municipalities in France (Paris, Nice, Toulouse, Bron, Saint-Lambert, Rueil-Malmaison, Villeneuve -the king). With their large antenna equipped with several sensors, they have a very different design from that of the devices you know well. Why such a metamorphosis? Quite simply because they are not classic radars.

These radar prototypes – developed by several companies, including one, called Hydra, by Bruitparif, the technical evaluation center for the sound environment in Ile-de-France – do not have ;eacute;té designed to measure excess speed. their acoustic device, these radars have the capacity to to measure the number of decibels produced by each vehicle. In France, approved vehicles generally do not exceed 80 decibels. The State, which wishes to hunt down noise pollution caused in particular by modified exhaust pipes, most often the # 39;the prerogative of two wheels, decided, é At the end of the first phase of testing, to set 85 d&eac;cibels the limit  do not exceed.

The second phase, with verbalizations à The key, was initially planned for the end of 2022, but the approval of the radars was delayed. Now approved, the boxes will be able to be reinstalled above the roads in the coming months. We even know à what date for the sound radar of Bron, a town in the Lyon suburbs. From the next school year, no more prevention, this anti-noise radar will be the first to be used. hand out tickets! All drivers of vehicles that are too noisy will receive a 4th class fine, as provided for by article R318-3 of the Highway Code. This corresponds to & a fixed fine of 135 euros, reduced by 90 euros if paid within 15 days.

The reinstallation of these new sound radars in the six other cities which have already been installed test the system should follow. Before, normally, being deployed to other locations. largest scale on the roads of France. A new device that probably hasn't stopped making noise!
