So, I’ve honestly never heard of this technology, but they are trialing it in Edmonton. Essentially, it is photo-radar for noise. Any vehicle that it detects over 96db will be photographed and issued a ticket automatically. What does Oppo think and have you heard of this before?
I really feel that as a society, we’re focusing on the wrong aspects of traffic enforcement. The government tells us this is for our own good, then implements it in a way that is geared for revenue collection.
Recently, in Metro Vancouver, they enabled all red-light cameras to also detect speed. Anybody who passes through an intersection over a certain speed, while green, will be ticketed. That to me, is an unacceptable use of a red-light camera, in a province where photo-radar is actually illegal. Oh, but it isn’t radar, it’s camera based so it’s fine.
