The municipality of Petah Tikva has been granted permission to implement a new noise pollution monitoring system, which will enable municipal inspectors to enforce laws against excessive noise in the city. This system, known as Noize, is installed at major city intersections and will allow inspectors to issue fines for violations such as excessive use of the horn or driving without a muffler.
The fines for these violations can be up to 730 shekels, depending on the type of offense. This decree not only targets drivers but also aims to combat noise pollution in homes and businesses. By utilizing this new system, Petah Tikva hopes to control and reduce noise levels throughout the city.
Once the decree is published in the Reshumot bulletin, inspectors can begin using readings from the Noize system to enforce the laws against excessive noise. This new technology will allow for more accurate and efficient monitoring of noise levels in the city, ultimately leading to a quieter and more peaceful environment for residents.
