London is planning to ban supercar engine revving, loud music and rapid accelerations.
Kensington and Chelsea council is currently discussing ways to control supercar traffic on the streets, for which it says have “a detrimental effect to the local community’s quality of life”. If the council receives the green light to make law changes, the high engine revving, loud music from inside the cars and rapid accelerations will be criminalized.
The new rules would also categorize the driving in convoy, beeping the horn and leaving the car 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 behaviour.”
