Shaping New regulation

The Netherlands

How to rethink enforcement of regulation using algorithims

Air and noise pollution do not abide by any geographic boundaries and can drastically impact the quality of life of residents living in surrounding areas. Regulating and enforcing compliance with air and noise standards can be tricky for local governments. As a result, regulations at times risk remaining just on paper. In the Netherlands, citizens living in the vicinity of a location where an event (e.g. a concert) or a construction happens receive an instant micropayment every time the noise level exceeds its limits. Sensors in their homes monitor the noise level. What other issues could be regulated this way?
