Friday was the first day that Shanghai’s ban on honking withing the Inner Ring Road came into effect. Fines range from RMB 200 for prolonged honking, RMB 100 for average offenses, and simple friendly reminders at the officer’s discretion for unavoidable toots. The Shanghai Morning Post reports that traffic noise was down on 11 decibels on average at 70 sites being monitored around the city.
