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.

  • Yes, they should be banned.

    Why should I have have to listen to an immature persons loves of a noise exhaust system or lack thereof, for their selfish enjoyment, when everyone else hates to listen to it. Why do I need to hear the dam noise from a car or motorcycles that is like - 2kms away ? People love to go to the outdoors be feel of this kind of unneeded noise pollution, why do we have to put up with it, in the city. I hate it.

  • Loud exhausts are invasive.

    A noise that penetrates the windows and walls of my home is an invasion of my privacy and it is only those modified loud exhausts that make that noise where I live. I don't invade their privacy, yes there should a a law against these kind of loud exhausts. I would like to know where these people live and then I would show them what it's like to be on the receiving end. We have to respect each other in this world or we end up fighting, that why loud exhausts need addressing in a fair society.

  • Low self esteem

    The only reason they are fitted is to give weak people an ego boost. Think about this, if they like the sound so much, why don't they remove the sound damping material from the interior of their cars? The whole point of a loud pipe is to leave your mark behind and hope people think you are cool. I prefer to hear some actual engineering noise from the car's engine, not for it to be drowned out by a loud pipe. Standard cars are more powerful than ever yet still very quiet.

  • Permanent Hearing Damage

    I just had a fool in a Mustang convertible douse all of us in a tunnel with painful noise. In a tunnel. And I mean painful. I hope his ears are ringing worse than mine are, because my ears are going to be ringing for days. Unthinking. Uncaring. Unkind. Unnecessary.

  • You have no right to force people to hear noise

    It is already illegal. The laws are either not enforced, or poorly enforced, depending on location.

    The potential health effects of noise pollution are numerous, pervasive, persistent, and medically and socially significant. Noise produces direct and cumulative adverse effects that impair health and that degrade residential, social, working, and learning environments with corresponding real (economic) and intangible (well-being) losses. It interferes with sleep, concentration, communication, and recreation. The aim of enlightened governmental controls should be to protect citizens from the adverse effects of airborne pollution, including those produced by noise. People have the right to choose the nature of their acoustical environment; it should not be imposed by others.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • It is what cars are about

    Besides how the car looks, most of people like exhausts notes. From my perspective the way a car sounds is one of the most important things. Of course if its a four cylinder with a fart cannon. No i would not like that to be legal, but if it is a toyota supra or ford mustang or chevy corvette its ok to have a loud exhaust. Those cars sound amazing. If you hear it coming you are forced to turn your head and look at it as it goes by. It just might be my opinion but loud exhausts are peaceful to me, more peaceful than some electric car driving by considering you cant hear them, silent cars are more dangerous to, try to take that into acount.

  • I believe that

    If you want to have loud exhaust you can, but if you are going to be a douche bag and just rev your "good sounding" car all the frking time, i say no. All the world needs are more insane revving idiots who will cause a natural disaster, and don't even get me started on ricers...

  • It's Been Around For A Long Time

    Cars with loud exhaust have been around for a long time and we can't simply place strict bans/restrictions on them just because they have loud exhaust systems.If the car itself is loud when the engine is not revving at high RPMs then I can understand but it kills all the fun and raw driving experience that has been around for 70+ years.Therefore,I support keeping loud exhaust systems legal and the driver can rev it out every now and then but again, if it is exceptionally loud then it must be regulated to some degree.
