§ Viscount Tenby
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What action they propose to take to curb the noise stemming from the use of excessively loud stereo sound systems in vehicles. [HL415]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Baroness Hayman)
Excessive noise from vehicle stereo systems is a small, but growing problem causing unnecessary and annoying noise nuisance. The department is in the process of preparing amendments to Regulation 97 of the Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986, relating to excessive noise from road vehicles, to address this issue.
