Aloha Everyone.  HB225 is an attempt to curtail the out-of-control noise heard everywhere from illegally modified motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters.  Illegal, really?  Yes, there are already numerous statutes and ordinances enacted but most are ambiguous and unenforceable and the riders take advantage of this.

Visit the website "A Quieter O'ahu" at http://www.quieteroahu.com for details on current legislation, and an overview of how bad the problem really is.  You see, these riders don't care that they interfere with your quality of life, or that they're loud and rude.  In fact, that's the point of it.

YOU Can change this.  Sign this petition and let Rep Hashem know that this noise and these abuses by Hawai'i's motorcycle, moped, and scooter riders is UNACCEPTABLE!!!  As is the behavior of vendors who traffic in the trade of providing aftermarket muffler/exhausts systems to increase noise levels.

Here's just ONE (1) link to illustrate the problem on YouTube illustrating HOW LOUD these exhausts can be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hmxII05ZN4 .  It's not an isolated video.  Just search using keywords youtube loud motorcycle and you'll find dozens more.  This is the culture.  Noise for the sake of noise.  They say engine efficiency, better operation, loud pipes save lives - all excuses that have been debunked by the responsible motorcycle community (examples on the website http://www.quiteroahu.com). 

Let's get this under control.  Please SUPPORT THIS BILL! - Mahalo
