Law preventing excessive noise from modified motor vehicles by increasing fines signed by governor


A new law has been signed to increase enforcement against motorists and repair shops that illegally modify mufflers and exhaust systems which make motor vehicles “exceptionally noisy.”

The fine for selling, offering for sale or installation of modified mufflers would be upwards of $1,000 — an $850 increase — according to the Senate bill (S784B). The new law will go into effect on April 1, 2022.
