That's a steep fine for a loud exhaust. But I do agree the noise of certain vehicles is outa control.

Around here, large over the road trucks often run straight pipes. This contributes mightily to the noise trucks make.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

Excellent! I hope this spreads to Canada. Biggest offenders here are the Harley owners. I ride too, but I don't subscribe to the loud pipes save lives BS.

Many people woke up by straight pipe or Harley would be happy to sleep in at 5am.

California was famous for being a coded law state. That meant you could get away with doing some real nonsense in certain circumstances as shown in the video below.

Famous old clip.

Finally, better late than never.
2-3 years ago when my daughter was an infant, the retards drove me nuts. Every night, retards with their loud exhaust Imprezzas and Evos would purposely try to trigger every car alarm on our street (25 mph speed limit). It woke my daughter up, and then another hour of lost sleep trying to get her to sleep, retards drive by again > joy again. I was giving serious thought to going out there and putting a brick through one of their windshields.

This was also a problem in the 60s and 70s with hot rodders. Municipalities would fine loud exhaust violators but those fines were not equal to $1000.

A lot of people have total disregard for others.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

I was going to post exactly this clip, just to point out how absurdly stupid this kind of thing is. I think a $1000 fine is completely in line for people who pull this B.S.

.. and then there's this kind of annoyance..

The problem is how will they enforce it? Will they equip every police vehicle with decibel meters?

My take is that if you're over the 95dB threshold then you're probably either an (edit-mod) or using your exhaust as an angry inch or low T compensator...in either case fine them. If you live in a state that's approaching 40 million people you can get extremely tired of the self-entitled in many areas of life. If they don't care and think it's cool to have a 110 dB exhaust then I don't care either if they fine them $1000 or impound the vehicle. IMO, that's more (edit-mod) elimination and quality of life restoration than draconian state law.

My truck has a 3 inch flowmaster on it. It was a real under powered turd with the stock muffler.
