The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee passed on Wednesday an addition to the criminal procedure order designating fines ranging from NIS 350-1,800 for violations of the Abatement of Nuisances Law, having to do with noise in residential areas.

According to the new regulations, lighting firecrackers in a residential neighborhood or operating a sound car alarm will cost individual transgressors NIS 350 and organization NIS 700.

Setting off fire works, installing a car alarm, operating loud gardening tools, between 2-4 pm or after 7 pm, or operating a leaf blower at any time of the day, will produce a fine of NIS 450 for individuals and NIS 900 for organizations.

All the fines will be doubled upon second transgression.
