The Traffic Department should intensify patrols, especially late at night, to catch people who create disturbances at residential neighbourhoods with 'noisy' bikes and cars, the Central Municipal Council (CMC) urged on Tuesday.
Sophisticated technology should be used to detect whether the vehicles exceed the acceptable noise levels and spot the violators, it was recommended.
At its regular biweekly session, the council also reviewed a number of other recommendations aimed at curbing the phenomenon of noisy vehicles used by some young people for 'show rides.'
The issue was earlier raised by CMC member Sheikha al-Jufairi, who discussed it with some senior traffic officials alongside some other CMC members.
The council heard though the phenomenon was curbed at most areas, 'noisy' motorbikes still persist, especially at some key tourist areas in the country. Some members pointed out that the noise produced by motorbikes is more than that of cars.
