Stop help unwanted noise pollution. Noise pollution is unwanted human-created sound that has the effect of being annoying, distracting, painful, or physically harmful. People exposed to noise pollution suffer from hearing loss, sleep deprivation, chronic fatigue, anxiety, hostility, depression and hypertension. Small children & Babies find it very hard to sleep when high noise exausting bikes passes through roads as far as hundreds of meters long.
We are frustrated and tired of hearing roaring exhaust systems that can be heard and felt over a wide distance, rattling windows and traveling through walls. Millions of people are adversely affected by motorcycle's loud exhaust noise.
So help to stop selling and registering(RTO passing) of high noise exhausting motor vehicles like bullet, harley-davidson, dark horse etc. Also introduce laws for unwanted illegal motor vehicle noise pollution,
including those with illegal modified exhaust systems rattling through our neighborhoods, on our city streets.

Statewide, our communities are faced with multifaceted problems stemming from:
A. Motorcycles with installed aftermarket exhaust systems that don't meet The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noise emissions.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets noise emissions standards for motorcycle exhaust systems. The standard for street-legal exhaust noise emissions is 80 dB(a).
All motorcycles are required to display an EPA stamp on the chassis and exhaust system. The EPA label match-up is designed as a regulatory measure for states and municipalities to control motorcycle noise.

Riders can legally buy and install aftermarket exhaust systems; however, it is required to meet EPA noise emissions. Most aftermarket exhaust systems are not street-legal
and are intended for off-road or professional track use only.

We must propose and enforce an anti-tampering law where dealers should not sell non-certified exhaust systems or parts and then refer a customer to another shop for installation.
Affix heavy penalties on dealers, owners and operators for noncompliance. A high percentage of motorcycles leave the dealerships with their exhaust modified to supposedly give it the distinct “Harley Sound.”
This is where the problem begins and where it should end. Aftermarket Installation shops should also be held accountable for anti-tampering and impose heavy penalties on them. This would eliminate many of the problems we are faced with today.

We MUST ban the sale of high noise exhausting motor vehicles(like bullet, harly-davidson, dark horse) and also loud pipes, and heavily fine those who customize and refuse to obey. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, especially if the law enforcement officials don't know the law. Please do not ignore our rights.
It's time for our law enforcement officials to be knowledgeable and enforce the law. We must evaluate every law pertaining to motorcycle exhausts noise and determine how to rid the streets of the noisemakers.

B. Bikes with excessive loud exhaust due to modified aftermarket exhaust systems, including faulty exhaust systems. Faulty exhausts greatly affect the amount of carbon emissions that your car pumps into the atmosphere...and into your lungs.  Faulty exhaust systems with excessive rust causing parts to hang dangerously low creates road hazards for other drivers.

It's time for our elected officials to protect our constitutional right of freedom from undesirable noise.

Please, do something about these infringements upon our rights, so we can keep our sanity.

It should be considered that the citizens who prefer peace and quiet outnumber vehicle noise enthusiasts and motorcyclists who prefer noise, for whatever reason,
and forcing noise upon a majority who find it undesirable is in fact a violation of their rights. That is how the Constitution works.
Your freedom and desire to make noise must not infringe upon the rights of others to be free of undesirable noise.
It is our right not to be bombarded by the noise of motorcycles that are 1 to 2 miles away while we are relaxing in our homes or in bed at night.
Our families should not be forced to listen to illegal exhaust noise within our homes over conversations, television, and sleep.
