(Dublin, Ohio) — Aimed at addressing resident concerns over loud engines and speeding, the Dublin Police Department has partnered with the City Prosecutor’s Office to begin a monthlong enforcement campaign to reduce noise violations in Downtown Dublin.
During the month of July, the Dublin Police will target excessive noise, speeding and unsafe operation of vehicles in the Historic Dublin and Bridge Park corridors as well as reckless operation in parking garages.
Police have consulted with City of Dublin Prosecutor Martin Nobile to outline what instances of unreasonable and excessive vehicle noise can be effectively enforced and prosecuted. This campaign seeks to decrease these disruptions in order to maintain safe and peaceful public and residential spaces.
Dublin Police will use decibel meters to measure these instances of extreme noise, with 95 decibels or higher measured from a distance of 50 feet or greater violating the City of Dublin’s noise ordinance.
Police will enforce a zero-tolerance policy and issue citations for stops including
- intentional revving of vehicle engines
- excessive speed
- reckless operation
- operating a vehicle intoxicated
- street racing
While the Dublin Police Department has not observed a street racing issue in the area, this type of reckless operation will be enforced. The campaign also focuses on speeding on parts of I-270 within the city that can contribute to the noise level in Downtown Dublin.#
