Noise limits would be lowered in stages.

The Commission plans to lower the current limit of 74 decibels for most passenger cars in two stages, according to a draft seen by European Voice. The limit would be lowered to 70 decibels two years after the new rules come into force, followed by a drop to 68 decibels after five years.
