Should cars with loud exhausts be banned from the streets

Asked by: mnadla
  • Yes they should

    I have a Toyota Camry and it has a muffler exhaust it really sounds nice but it's not quiet and it's not loud it's the perfect volume. I love how I can hear my engine roar but it hate how people have super loud cars that sound ugly and old. They are just annoying and disturbing they peace.

  • Especially if it's a slow vehicle

    I get it, You want people to notice you, But no one thinks you're cool. You come off as tryhard and insecure. With todays technology, Exhaust systems can be non restrictive and STILL be quiet at low RPMs. Just because you got some cheap exhaust and have no idea how to drive or tune your car properly, Doesn't mean everyone else has to suffer. For those of you who do this on particularly slow cars and trucks, It's especially bad. No one wants to hear BRRAAAAPPP when you're struggling to do 15 MPH. That just means you're an idiot when it comes to cars

  • Yes, The world is too noisy and stressful. Research has proven this over and over, But some people aren't very smart.

    Loud cars are so bad that I have to wear ear plugs in my own house, Just to support some stupid person's hobby. These loud cars are scaring people right off the sidewalk, And they get a kick out of it. That's sick. I think you car buffs should get a life, And grow up. Noise effects everyone, Young and old, But this too is an IQ test!

  • Ghetto losers want attention.

    There are two morons with obnoxiously loud cars very near my area. One of them is my downstairs neighbor. His piece of shit $4000 car is louder than war. Every day I have to hear that f***ing awful noise. It wakes us all up, Including my 4 month old. F***ing ghetto losers with no manners and their piece of shit parents that raised such trash. Take your ghetto ass piece of shit cars and drive off a cliff with them, Do us all a favor.

  • Loud noise is not needed, At all!

    I can remember many moments where cars with loud exhausts, Simply go faster, Make more noise, And draw more attention to their own car. It's utterly annoying when one is walking to hear such disturbing noises, Not to mention, Loud noises. Those cars are not needed, And unless it's an old car or sports car, One does not need to make such noise.

  • Upsetting the peace and quiet, Of working people.

    People who are paying the lions share of taxes,
    should not have to tolerate having their sleep
    And relaxation disturbed, By loud vehicle
    Exaust modifications done for no benefit,
    other than to make a vehicle loud and obnoxious,
    there have been similar restrictions on overly loud
    And obnoxious vehicle sound systems also.

  • Yes, After a certain level.

    A certain level should be set for each town or county. Maybe time of day restrictions as well. I get that young men are eager to showcase their cars as affectations, That will probably never change while cars exist. But being respectful of others in the community may have to be enforced by the law if people aren't considerate enough to think of it on their own.

  • Really think about it. .

    "Everyone is free to express themselves how they see fit. " Does your brain go any further than that. . ? Must be tough to realize that you're imposing your noise onto others. So your freedom idea goes out the window when you begin affecting other peoples lives negatively with YOUR decisions. "Oh it's such a quick thing when i pass, Get over it". Again, Please think a bit further into this. . It's tons of people doing the same thing. Once you pass in another 30 seconds another one comes by so the noise is constant. Go to a track or learn to drive your noisy car not like a dick. Thanks.

  • Loud cars should be illegal.

    Don't we have enough horrid noises on this planet. I moved into a new apartment and thought there was a race track near by. It was just a moron with a loud car. I don't know who he is trying to impress. I didn't realize that such an item could actually be legal. Shame on the manufacturers of these contraptions.

  • Should be banned by all hoa!

    The fact he's make small issues huge fines is a joke since they don't seem to consider these people at all. They cause PTSD patients to panic, Kids and parents to wake up, Or wake up the pets in their house. The people who believe their entitled to the neighborhoods attention at 3am onwards need a new hobby. It should've been banned straight away for areas that were supposed to be peaceful. Really just banned in general since new drivers are always joining and these guys only contribute to road rage or anxiety! Trying to show off should never elicit these negative reactions when people's lives are at stake. Through emotional or full physical harm accidents this isnt alright.

  • No it shouldnt

    Modded cars show the personality of the owner. If someone wants to have a loud exhaust then i support that. I want a loud exhaust but you can get in trouble for moddified exhaust. This is AMERICA DAMMIT.It is saying certain more words are needed so im typing so i can submit

  • Gonna stop crying

    Why don't you all stop crying and ruining peoples fun. Cars are loud so what. Wear a pair of ear plugs if you don't like the noise. Loud noise cos racecar brap brap brap brap brapb rap brap brap brap brap brap brap brap brap brap brapbrap brap brap brap brap brapbrap brap brapbrap brap stututututu

  • Fuck all of you

    Why ruin something for everyone just because of a few people. You dumb ass non car people don't understand. A muffler and cat delete lets your engine open up so that stupid ass box of metal is not choking up your engine. Ya'll are some entitled ass motherfuckers, Who cares, Its just a car, And if someone wants to make their car sound cool for their enjoyment leave them alone. You have your own things that enjoy you.

  • I have every right to make my car how I like it

    Just like the right to wear what ever you want to express yourself. I should have the right to express my self how ever I may chose. Cars now a days are a huge part of peoples identity. Looking at someones car. If you see a crappy old honda civic you think. . . Maybe that person doesnt care about cars. But some one that has a modded car, Who spent the time and money to out in a loud exhaust, Engine and performance mods. That is how they chose to express themselves.
    Another point is that yes they may be loud but honestly cars move around its not loud for long they come and go. . . Maybe get over yourself and except other peoples choices.

  • Restrictions on Car and Motorcycle Noise Will Negatively Affect the Medical/Pharmaceutical Industry - One of the Few Bright Spots in the US Economy

    Noise is GDP-positive. No one should restrict it. There are an army of folks in the Silicon Valley working on automating many tasks that people get paid too much to do and don't do well enough - clerks, taxi drivers, truck drivers, train drivers, stock and inventory replenishment, cashiers, cooks, so many jobs. The rest is off shored. Your iPhone isn't made here and neither is the computer server hosting this website in some data center - it's all made in China. The fabs/factories cost billions and it's too hard to train people here to work those jobs. Even Apple employs more low paid workers at Apple stores than US software engineers.

    The one place you can get economic value out of people boosting GDP regardless of their intelligence is medical/pharmaceutical. Many people aren't intelligent enough to understand the health implications of certain activities - it's impossible to explain it to someone with limited intelligence/education. But you don't have to explain anything to people to treat health problems with drugs. Even people of limited intelligence know pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression - a checkup shows hypertension.

    Medical/pharmaceutical is 20% of GDP. We can grow it without forcing people to learn new things. Let them be free and boost GDP treating their illnesses.

    Noise from traffic, loud car exhaust, etc. has been conclusively proven in scientific studies to cause hypertension, anxiety, insomnia, depression, cognitive deficit/performance decline and for children, it causes behavioral problems, poor school performance and other problems.

    People who live in high income neighborhoods don't drive loud cars and motorcycles. In Atherton, Ross, Hillsborough, Woodside, Los Gatos (the nice part, not the meh part), you will not hear one single loud, burble burble car. If a person these neighborhoods drove a loud car or motorcycle, they'd be talked to - subject to enormous pressure.

    You can't explain science to folks with limited intelligence. They usually say "Yeah, but that doesn't apply to me or my family because we're different." The best you can do is hook them up on the subscription model. I own Merck, Allergan and GSK shares. I support pharma paying for doctors' trips to Hawaii with their families for 'seminars' etc. in exchange for pushing product. Nebivolol for hypertension is $130 a month - that's $1,560 per year per patient. A 35 year old with hypertension who'll live to 70 will generate $54,600 from just one on-patent drug. The cost to produce $54,600 of pills? $80, sometimes less. Belsomra, excellent for insomnia, is $328/month. Assuming mid-30s onset, that's a lifetime bounty of $137,760. Lexapro is about $260 a month, a lifetime bounty of $109,200. That's $301,560 over 35 years, or 26.8% of the ENTIRE PRETAX INCOME of an average US worker over 35 years (median personal income). Laugh, but median income workers in the US provide more GDP value in pharma bounty than any other area of activity. It's their economic function for the foreseeable future. Mess with that if you want a 10 year recession.

  • No they should not

    Loud cars are in all classic vehicles because of the size of their engine. To ban these cars would confirm a blatant disregard for history. Disturbing the peace is done in ways other than noise; a loud car driving by is far less disturbing than public intoxication and violent crime and a ban would put the cars in the same field as these offenses. A ban would be a great example of poor policy making by our legislature.

  • No, They shouldn’t. Get over yourselves.

    There is nothing more satisfying than modifying your car and making it how you want. A good exhaust can not only enhance performance, But provide an amazing sensation every time you press the throttle. Just because someone enjoys cars and loves the driving experience doesn’t make them a hooligan, Or a selfish person. People who complain about people being happy are selfish. Wear some ear muffs instead of being some babies and crying about it.

  • It's not just about being loud

    People trying to ban loud exhausts because of some people showing is the stupidest thing. If you don't like it, Move. Or ask the people to try to be quiet, Obviously you might run into a dumb redneck that will do it even more after you ask but most people will be polite and keep it down. My car has a louder exhaust but I don't go around revving it at ungodly times at night. It's also about performance, I take my car to a track and do time attack in it. I put the exhaust on my car for performance purposes, Sure I like hearing it but I'm not obnoxious about it. Just mind your business and let people have fun

  • V8's no but 4 cylinders...Ban them all

    I have a camaro ss with the Borla Attack catback exhaust and it just wouldn't sound right without it. I really dont know anyone who doesn't like the rumble from a large V8.

    4 cylinders on the other, what can I say. I truly am embarrassed for the fools running around in their civics and mazda 3's with the stupidly loud exhausts. First, the sound isn't menacing but just ear piercing (like a 9 year old girls shrill). Secondly, if you idiots are going to install that crap on your imports, at least have the common sense to get some work done on the engine. DON'T BE A RICER (Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement)! Even non-gear heads think your tools!

  • It's a freedom thing

    People should have the freedom to what they want for modification to their vehicles
    it's good be different from others and some people express their happiness with mods such as aftermarket exhaust systems.
    It doesn't physicly harm anyone it might not what other people like but who cares about other peoples thought on your vehicles.
