More fun police “big brother” technology on it’s way!

The British government is going to trial noise cameras in several areas across the UK this summer to try to keep Britain’s streets quieter.

The noise cameras will be used in four areas of England and Wales, and “can automatically detect individual cars and bikes breaking noise limits,” according to the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF). 

I’m not really sure where to start on this?
It’s one of those stories that your hear about but it never really seems to happen, well now it looks like it might be!

“There is already limited use of noise cameras in Britain, for example in Westminster, where politicians operate in a separate reality. The BMF suggests that the trials in England and Wales set for this summer could be a precursor to a nationwide distribution of noise cameras.

Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, is “inviting residents to lobby their MP to submit applications to take part,” according to the BMF. “We want those in Britain’s noisiest streets, who are kept up at night by unbearable revving engines and noisy exhausts, to come forward with the help of volunteer areas to test and perfect the latest innovative technology,” said Shapps. “

A noisy exhaust passing through a neighbourhood maybe a bit bit annoying but I don’t think it is worth prosecuting? 
In a day and age where the government seem out to prosecute people that are otherwise law abiding citizens its just seems to be another revenue generator!
