IMO, that's more (edit-mod) elimination and quality of life restoration than draconian state law.

AS an ex-Southern Californian I would agree. It's the same thing if your blasting your radio as well. It might be a 95db law as well. There are also laws on the books about how dark your tinted windows can be for both side windows of the front seats. This was done to protect law enforcement. Here in Utah-we have such laws bu they are not widely enforced. So-in a parking lot when you can't see the other driver through the windows-it's very tough to acknowledge right-of way.

I agree in principle. I hate having to stop conversation while some yayhoo drives by showing how cool he is. My bigger beef is with a lot of motorcycle riders.

$1000 is a bit much. I doubt anyone will write that kind of ticket. Make it $100 and start handing them out.

Kind of like our litter law. I never heard of anyone getting a $500 for littering, yet we have litter all over the place.

Only applies to modified exhaust, louder than normal factory exhaust is still okay it seems. It’s possible to have modified exhaust and not be obnoxious.

Agreed. We have Apartments nearby and they go blasting up the cross street to ours and it echos off the buildings. Seems they go by at Midnight and 5am. mad

Hope they have that in Honolulu. Those loud Subarus, Hondas, mopeds and some Harleys should be fined.

Miami Beach is strict with idiots on motorcycles revving their engines.

Tourists complain about the noise.

There was a product that was developed in Canada called "The Noise Snare". Basically a "sound" version of photo radar.

Problem is, prosecutions were very difficult and I don't know if a single one actually succeeded in securing a conviction.

95 db at what distance? Meaningless figure without it.

ON sound systems they put in a distance measurement. Something like 95db within 200 feet...or something like that.

Laws are usually written to be enforceable-but they do miss now and again.

It always makes me laugh when people go to Miami Beach expecting peace and quiet.

My Chevy SS, Camaros and others have a bimodal exhaust. A flip of a switch make some good noise. I hope not ticket worthy sounds...but since it is “stock”, no ticket.... or at least a sound defense at court?

I did not hear about the new law, but it will be hard to enforce, at least in Silicon Valley.
The police have too much to do as it is.
For example, the commuter lanes are clogged with cheats; they don't even care.

As for the price, well if you do get busted, when you add on court costs, etc, it will certainly be waaaaaay more.
