This new radar is catching noisy drivers!

A new radar has been invented by UAE Police, that can detect noise pollution by vehicles. So if your car is being too loud, you're gonna get flashed and fined. 

This is the first type of speed camera in the world and was invented by the Head of the Traffic Safety Section at the Traffic Engineering and Safety Department of the Traffic and Patrol Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police, Captain Ahmed Abdullah Al Muhairi. 

Speaking to Emirates 24/7 Al Muhairi explained: "The radar automatically measures the intensity of noise produced by a passing vehicle. If the noise ratio is higher than the allowed limit, the radar will immediately take photos, scan the vehicle’s license plate and fine the violating drivers."

Violators of the noise pollution law could be faces with a Dh500 and even have their car impounded!
