First red light cameras, now "sound camera" tickets

http://www.natarus.com/Issues/Issue.aspx?IssueId=5

Sound cameras could improve motorcycle enforcement efforts.

One of the most pressing quality of life issues in our ward is noise pollution caused by motorcycles that have been illegally modified to amplify the sound of their engines. I have attempted to address this issue by establishing firm legal grounds for enforcement and by working with the police department to crack down on offenders.

Unfortunately, there is no easy solution to this problem. Many of the worst offenders come from out of town, and every year they ride into our neighborhoods as the weather warms up.

The good news is that we are exploring a new technology that may give us the edge in our efforts to combat excessive motorcycle noise. There is a new device on the market called a sound camera that can take noise readings and automatically issue a ticket just like the red light cameras that are being installed throughout the City.

I am working with Mayor Daley to research the possibility of installing sound cameras in the locations where we get the most motorcycle traffic in our ward.

I will keep you updated on the potential of this new technology. In the meantime, please attend your local C.A.P.S meetings to encourage the police department to help us with aggressive enforcement efforts.

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

Clutch in, roll through, clutch out, hit the gas.

Maybe if we had a government agency dedicated to teaching motocyclists how to properly set up thier bikes to be with in the law we wouldnt have this problem.








HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

That law will end real quick when they realize they aren't giving as many tickets to sportbikes as they thought. V-Twin Cruisers are a lot bigger offense to sound and exhaust laws than sportbikes.

First, Burt Natarus is a dork. He has always been a dork, though, so that's not news.

The noise ordinance is very specifically written and there are specific parameters for a noise test, which I seriously doubt can be followed accurately by any red-light-camera-type device. Natarus either isn't paying attention to what these devices can do, or hasn't bothered to check code.

Second:
