SUPERCAR drivers who rev their engine on UK roads could be caught using new noise cameras.
The specialised technology would help track down nuisance motorists who make too much noise in busy neighbourhoods.
Kensington and Chelsea council has asked the Government to install new noise cameras on troublesome roads in the posh district.
The system, which is fitted with noise detection equipment, activates when loud vehicles exceed a certain decibel limit.
It then snaps a photo of their registration plate and a ticket is sent to the driver, with some fines as much as £1,000.
Since the fines were introduced in 2015, the council has handed out 148 tickets to noisy motorists.
Many London streets are often used as race tracks by wealthy supercar owners who are showing off their expensive wheels.
The push for the cameras comes after a speeding motorist crashed into a line of luxury cars in Chelsea only last week.
The shocking footage shows a black Audi 4×4 smashing into pricey motors as it raced another car on Moore Street.
Johnny Thalassites, Kensington and Chelsea councillor, has written Transport Secretary Grant Shapps to ask for the district to be included in a UK trial of the cameras.
He said: “Powerful cars need careful handling and, unfortunately, our borough has seen and heard how certain drivers mistake our streets for a car show.
“This has been going on for years and it’s reaching crisis point.
“Acoustic cameras would give us a powerful new tool to catch drivers flouting the rules of the road.”
If the trials are successful, the system could be rolled out across the UK.
Drivers can also be hit with hefty fines for listening to loud music if it’s disturbing other people or causing you to drive erratically.
