REDUCTION IN VEHICLE NOISE - INCENTIVE FOR QUIET VEHICLES

KFZ-LAERMABGABE - ANREIZ FUER LEISE KRAFTFAHRZEUGE

An effective battle against traffic noise is carried out at the point of origin, in the vehicle itself. The required technical measures are known but, because of cost and the associated disadvantages from the market competitive viewpoint, they are not generally applied to produce quieter vehicles. A reduction in the noise emission of vehicles, introduced by the lorry manufacturer or alternatively by the importer, should balance the competitive disadvantages of quiet vehicles and contribute to the general introduction into the markets. The necessary constitutive elements of such a vehicle noise reduction and their economic effects are discussed.
