A quietist's proposal has been put to Dr Bill Wilson PhD, the government's Noise
Specialist, that Infringement Notices be issued according to a binary system

The proposal has two parts:

(a) that the penalty for neighbourhood Noise offences be doubled for each successive
offence;

(b) that any penalty be halved if it's paid within 21 days

It has also been suggested that the same binary system be utilised to control barking
offences

Comments is invited
