The municipality of Petah Tikva has been granted permission to use a new noise pollution monitoring system, which will allow municipal inspectors to enforce laws against excessive noise in the city. This system, known as Noize, is installed at major city intersections and will be used 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. The goal of this decree is not only to target drivers but also 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.
The Knesset Committee on Justice and Judiciary has approved the decree, which will be published in the Reshumot bulletin before inspectors can begin issuing fines. This new system is expected to greatly improve the enforcement of noise laws in Petah Tikva and help to create a quieter and more peaceful environment for residents.
