    Background: Testing engine noise of motor cycles and other 2-wheel motor vehicles was filmed by VISNEWS in Paris, May 25 - opening date of the French capital's "Week of Silence".

    Motor cyclists and motorists can have their vehicles tested at two centers, without charge,during the Week. After testing, they receive a certificate saying whether or not their vehicle conforms with prescribed noise levels. If not, owners are advised to have their vehicles made less noisy.

    The "Week of Silence", arranged by the Prefecture of Police and a road transport organization, aims at making Paris a quieter city, and follows the banning some years ago of the use of motor horns.

    The campaign also applies to other noises, such as over-loud playing of radios and loud family squabbles.
