We opposed this legislation which seeks to allow for the use of “noise violation detection systems” in municipalities in Rhode Island, as we do not believe it appropriately addresses the many practical concerns which accompany this type of technology.  The bill, for example, fails to enumerate any procedural safeguards to accompany their use, including their disproportionate placement in low-income communities.
