Police in Miami Beach are cracking down on drivers blasting loud music.

A special police squad will begin pulling over cars with loud music blaring from car stereos beginning this weekend, according to city officials. The goal is to address noise complaints and other disturbances in the busy tourist district.

Miami Beach Police Chief Dan Oates told city commissioners on Wednesday that violators will be given one warning. After that, a noise violation can lead result in an arrest and trip to jail.

“We must protect residential quality of life, while maintaining the unique characteristics of our vibrant city, City Manager Jimmy L. Morales said in the statement. “Excessively loud music and vehicles operating unlawfully also seriously diminish the visitor experience and must stop.”

The increased enforcement follows a busy spring break that brought thousands of visitors to South Beach.
