It's like everything else.

In order to test for sound levels you need a sound tester.
Money.

You need a certified operator.
More money.

Maintenance for the tester.
More money.

Specific unit to test for sound levels?
More money.

Cost to defend results in court.
More money.

Will the "revenue" generated by the fines cover the cost of operating the program?

Will the end results save lives or money?
