I can't remember how many years I have my Nismo registered for lol. However, this law also targets individuals who have natural holes in their exhausts from wear and tear , and have a car with a loud engine to begin with. So any vehicle louder than 95-decibels last year or today was never in compliance with California law. He started a petition to nullify the fine. Both Harley and Sport Bike riders seem to be opposed to baffles in their mufflers. Motorcycles manufactured after 1985 may not exceed 80-decibels.
Previously, a driver or motorcyclist who was cited for modified or excessively loud exhaust or muffler systems could correct the violation to avoid a fine. I don't believe they even check if you don't blow a code but I am no expert on that part of title 28. Yep, and that is doing stupid if you live in Pima or Maricopa county. I will try to find the video when I'm home and link it. This was not changed by A. No decibel limit is given. I have lived in Kingman since 1993 and never had to get my vehicle tested.
A peaceful protest is also in the works related to the petition. They should not be giving citations for an exhaust that is stock. If I get a ticket, will I get points on my license? I noticed some flames coming out of your exhaust, mind popping the hood for me, and stepping out of the car? If I was an officer and I was precluded from writing a fix-it slip or a warning, I wouldn't stop too many vehicles. Got busted when my grandfather took it to a garage to have tires put on it, and the mechanic asked Grampy if he raced it. Once verified using their secure system, message us and we will update your flair. After the waiting period legislation will be considered.
Seriously bro, no one wants to hear your V-6 camaro — put a muffler on it. What are some other options to get around this crazy law? Sounds like they must have changed this because I was wondering why I didn't have to smog and its my 4th year since purchase on my Nismo. This bill would include, among those conditions that are disqualifying, a violation of the above-described requirements related to mufflers and exhaust systems. For example, you can't be sentenced to death if you just steal a candy bar. It was put inside of a bill with many unrelated laws.
Call me a faggot all you want. We're not here to be a piggy bank. I can't remember how many years I have my Nismo registered for lol. I think a similar law exists here in Wisconsin, or at least Milwaukee, but because the Motor Company has such a special relationship with the city, it almost never gets applied. Beginning with motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines of the 1968 model year, motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines shall be equipped with emissions control devices that meet the standards established by the director of environmental quality. We never heard or saw that car again after it was towed away.
Existing law requires every motor vehicle subject to registration to be equipped with an adequate muffler in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise and prohibits a muffler or exhaust system from being equipped with a cutout, bypass, or similar device. Some of the drive for this has been some reckless activity by people taking over streets and doing things like donuts. Sideshows that for the past 2. I never replaced them but was more careful where I racked them. I'm wondering if it will actually effect harleys because it seems like most people think harleys come from the factory loud. Most notably, enactment of A. I do believe there should be enforcement against motorcycles, cars and trucks that don't have proper mufflers.
I play every where on the forum. A person who violates this section is subject to a civil penalty of at least one hundred dollars. My Focus has some valves in the exhaust system that seem to make it pop and fart when you whale on it. Forget Mexico, they should put a wall up around that commie state. Laws are different in every city of every state. I was working at an auto supply at the time so the receipt was fake news and I was holding a muffler from inventory.
Thankfully I don't live in cali anymore. Nearly 150,000 of whom have signed a petition to nullify the fines. On January 1, 2019 a new law went into effect for the state of California known as California Assembly Bill A. In Florida we don't even have vehicle inspections. I added a thread in So Cal and linked this one.
This document seeks to clarify the matter. The law is very welcome. If your assembly member is one listed above, the finder will provide a link with information to contact them. In June of 2018 California Governor Jerry Brown signed A. I hate that a law like this exists and I'm not surprised at all to hear it's in California. This allows courts to dismiss citations for exhaust systems that have been tested and for which a certificate of compliance has been issued. We believe the situation will be resolved in no time! Now, a motorist cited for violating the current California exhaust noise law may receive an immediate fine.
Can we count on you to help preserve the classics of today and tomorrow? Among other things in this bill, it changed the way that police officers are to handle pulling over someone with a modified exhaust system. Remember, impersonating a law enforcement officer, even online, is a crime. The third thing you can do is to try and repeal this law. So yeah, this is a blatant attack on automotive enthusiasts. So, other than keeping our rides quiet, this law does nothing.
