The Georgia Loud Vehicles Task Force is asking for your help! They are working with several legislators to have a bill passed to allow noise detection cameras. Currently, these are not allowed in Georgia but they are used across the United States and throughout Europe.
"Noise detection cameras measure the decibel level of vehicles and if the level is above the legal limit, a picture of the license plate with the date, time, location and decibel reading. Then a violation is mailed to the owner of the vehicle. This is much like the school zone cameras. We believe everyone has the right to drive the vehicle of their choice but the impact on the public is important.
Not only are these loud vehicles impacting your quality of life but they are also a health and public safety issue. Noise pollution has been proven to cause stroke, high blood pressure, hearing issues, productivity and many other health related issues. Noise pollution impacts wildlife such as birds not hearing danger, disturbing their sense of when to gather seeds to spread. It impacts your ability to hear emergency vehicles creating a public safety issue.
We ask you to sign our Stop Loud Vehicles in Georgia petition. The results of this will be presented to legislators as they consider the bill. We need your help as we need to gather enough signatures to impress legislators how important this is to you and your neighbors.
We will be visiting the state capital on Tuesday Feb 20 from 8:00am to 10:00am. This will be a chance to interact with the legislators in person. There is strength in numbers so we need a very large turnout. Please consider joining us at the state capital.
Here is the Change.org Petition link Stop Loud Vehicles in Georgia and a QR code.
Please sign and share with your network.
As we are looking into carpooling on Tuesday Feb 20, please sign up here State Capitol Visit Feb 20
Thank you for your help. We cannot get our quality of life back without this bill."
