Did You Know? I am not alone: I have officially declared WAR on noise pollution from modified vehicles - cars, trucks, and bikes - that spew excessive noise for the 'joy' of their driver at the expense of everyone else...usually thousands who are not held to the same standard. This is an issue both in cities and suburbs and now New York City is initiating new legislation - the Stop Loud and Excessive Exhaust Pollution, or SLEEP - that would raise fines from $150 to $1,000 per violation. (Most states are under 85 decibels). It sets the maximum noise limit at 95 decibels. Police vehicles could become equipped with decibel-reading devices. Most cities and some smaller towns and neighborhoods have noise ordinances....of course, they are worthless unless those laws are enforced. Most states require all vehicles to have a working muffler.
