Meanwhile, the Motorcycle Industry Association said cameras could reduce nuisance noise if they were used in the right way.

Chief executive Tony Campbell said: "Motorcycle manufacturers accept that they have a role to play and I think you'll see it more difficult to start tampering with vehicles in the future."

"As an industry we're playing our part," he added.

Crime is on the up and how else to boost the numbers of stopped crime by the police. Start targetting motorists.

Did you know every speed ticket from a camera is classed as a serious crime prevented. Yep thats how they report their figures. Its only when you break down the figures that you realise its a load of bull.

Think about how many speeding tickets are handed out each day including traffic cameras like no right turn etc.To me they are traffic or highway offences. Any speed can be dangerous. But where do you draw the line.

I canít see it happening , currently there are no rules in place mot wise on noise if they were i would fail lol , the police have nothing in place to deal with noise , my monaro is really loud but still road legal , how can you fine a super car driver when it came with the that loud exhaust as standard , they spoke about motorway speed limits being 80 that never happened either .. what a shame

Being honest itís been a long time coming in one shape or another.

Not cars but for me, my house reverberates from the sound of mopeds and badly silenced 50cc to 500cc singles and twins used mainly by commuters. The Chinese no name bikes are the worst as they seem to be standard yet have barely adequately silencing and just make a constant drone (especially if itís a single speed ).

Then we have the fair weather bikers on the weekend...the worst are Harleys because for some reason they like to ride in circles for half the day...the super bikes usually are heading too/from Wales so you only hear the same bikes once, the same Harley will go past again and again and again...same goes for the quad bikes (although many of them arenít legal anyway).

To listen youíd think Iíd live in the city...nope on the edge of the green belt. And itís got worse and worse over the past five years to the point I was going to gut the entire upstairs of my house to add extra soundproofing.

Iím being pragmatic here..there is loud and too loud. Most Supercars have bypass valves in the exhaust, so there is a way to drive them quietly in a residential area. Quads and Chinese singles/twins just drone loudly all the time regardless of how sensibly they are ridden.


Plus Nur specs sound crap always have always will. But then Iím a man that happily fit equal length headers or a twin scroll to loose that ďVw Beetle with a misfireĒ sound you get from the unequal headers ( Donít hate; Iím rarely one to follow the heard ).

A not overly loud exhaust , they can never say they did not hear you coming , i second the above about not going too fast 30 40 and 50 as thatís where you are more likely to hit some one , kill some one on a road you are looking at doing time , also the responsibility of pedestrians to check before crossing !! , plus a dash cam is a very good way forward too , most tickets for speed are by fixed cameras plus average/variable speed limits enforced by cameras , next most common is camera vans

I don't disagree mate. And where I am the speed limit is 20mph. But funny thing is it isn't on any of the bus routes. On the smart motorways you often get a speed drop from 60 to 40 with a camera right there catching loads of people out.
