Anyone have a noise meter?

11 August 2011
Arlington, VA
Arlington is getting annoying with their noise complaint laws:

idiots said:
Among the proposed changes, county staff is recommending an increase in the fine for a noise violation from $25 to a maximum of $2,500. Jail time would also be possible under the revised ordinance.
The threshold for vehicle noise will be 70-90 dB, depending on the vehicle’s speed and weight

Of course they will not be subject to their own laws:
hypocrites said:
The county government and its contractors are exempt from the ordinance.

I can see the cops hanging out around car meets right now with dollar signs in their eyes and noise meters in their hand.
