Many do not know that the punishment for the loud music coming from the car varies depending on whether the car is parked or moving along the road. Let's try to figure out what fans of turning the volume to the maximum may face.
First of all, it is worth noting that it is illegal to listen to loud music that for a long time hinders other people or prevents a driver from driving a car. The penalty for this violation depends on whether the car is parked or you are driving along the road, since in this case you will either deal with the police or with the local authorities.
If your car is parked on the street or in a private area, then local authorities have the right to charge you with exceeding the permissible noise level, as if you were listening to music in the house and interfering with neighbors. The local authorities do not have the right to stop the car and demand documents from the driver.
But the police have much more opportunities to punish the driver under article 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002. If too loud music is heard from the car that disturbs and irritates others, the police have the right to confiscate the car. To begin with, the intruder can be warned and asked to make the sound quieter. Ignoring this warning can lead to the confiscation of the car.
