It seems that the noise bylaw is doing nothing to curb this problem, and it would be nice to see something in the works so the majority of people can rest easy at night.
We are surround by hordes of motor vehicles bur-ping out huge amounts of noise all day and night long. From motorcycles, cars and trucks of all sizes with no mufflers that are suppose to restrict these levels. This situation has gone on for long enough, and I’m sure the time has come to get a handle on this.
These vehicles get pulled over by the police, but they seem to let them drive away with no idea that their exhaust systems are not up to the motor vehicle code. These big trucks roll through the weigh scales three to seven times a day, and many of them have punched out mufflers or none at all.
It seems that no one is watching this evolve before our very eyes, and the new year is soon rolling in for more of this same noise problems.
More people are going this route with their own vehicles as well.
Motorcycles, cars and diesel pickup trucks line the streets in every town across the province, belching out noise way beyond an acceptable limit. Without some sort of measurable system in place, this blatant disrespect to fellow citizens will surely continue.
The time has come for this province to nip this show in the “butt” with automatic vehicle suspensions. If the exhaust system is not stock, or has been tampered with, or does not fit the mould of the North America noise emission, your unit gets a free ride to a compound unit it gets fix to meet these standards.
If only more people would speak up, then I can’t see why the authorities would turn a blind eye on this issue. The time has come to bring this to the table, or we all might have a tougher time sleeping if it goes unchecked.
