Sharjah: Sharjah Police have installed new radars that detect noisy motorists, in a bid to cut down on residential disturbance.

The device measures decibels of passing cars to capture violators in video and audio. Those exceeding 95 decibels can be fined Dh2,000 and get 12 black points along with confiscation of vehicles ranging up to six months, under Article 20 of the Federal Traffic Law.
