Raleigh Ite started this petition to Mayor of Raleigh and

Mayor of Raleigh and RPD: Start enforcement of Raleigh noise ordinance to prevent constant noise pollution!

"“Raleigh is a beautiful city, with many great neighborhoods and an impressive downtown. It is truly disturbing that Raleigh officials have allowed the city to become overcome with noise from illegal after-market exhausts. Elected officials and the police should take action to protect public health and quality of life. Raleigh should truly be the City of Oaks—not the City of Loud Exhausts.”

"N.C. General Statute 20-128 prohibits exhaust systems not of the type installed at the time of manufacture; it also requires the exhaust to work to prevent excessive or unusual noise"

"Noise pollution has a significant impact on all people–not just those who may be particularly sensitive. Egelston notes that “a great deal of research indicates that stress hormone levels increase in the presence of loud and unexpected noises (whether the person regards them as irritating or not). Those stress hormones are implicated in heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and anxiety disorders. Just because someone may not find these noises particularly annoying doesn’t mean their bodies aren’t reacting adversely!”"
