London banning supercar engine revving and loud music
London is going forward with a law to ban supercar engine revving, loud music and rapid accelerations.
Kensington and Chelsea council is currently discussing laws to control supercar traffic on the streets of London, for which it says have “a detrimental effect to the local community’s quality of life”.
If the council receives the go ahead to make law changes, the loud engine revving, loud music from inside the vehicles and rapid accelerations will be criminalized.
The new rules would also categorize the driving in lineup, honking the horn and leaving the vehicle running while stationary as a violation of the law.
“I know there has been a lot of coverage of expensive cars racing around Knightsbridge and also parking up and revving their engines,” Tim Ahern, the council’s cabinet member for environment, environmental health and leisure comments.
“We want to take steps to discourage these drivers from their antisocial behavior.”
