Noisy mufflers and loud parties won’t be tolerated, say Red Deer RCMP

As the weather continues to get warmer, loud noise becomes a more common concern.

Red Deer RCMP say every summer, police receive numerous complaints regarding noise from vehicles and house parties.

“Drivers should be aware that they risk fines if their vehicle noise is in violation of traffic laws and City of Red Deer bylaws,” said Const. Derek Turner of the Red Deer RCMP.

Turner said modified mufflers are the biggest culprit in creating excessive vehicle noise.

Officials follow up on traffic vehicle notices, and if those notices are not complied with, the follow-up ticket carries a $233 fine and four demerit points.

“Some vehicle noise is normal and to be expected in cities, but RCMP want to remind everyone that excessive noise is not acceptable,” Turner said.

“Your right to make noise ends at the point where it infringes on others’ ability to enjoy the outdoors or to get a decent night’s sleep.”
