Some of them are stupidly loud and shouldnt be on the roads, but they shouldnt be banned altogether. Its always funny to see someone in a 1.1 Saxo driving along with the loudest exhaust you ever heard in you life lol!

Tbh, it is a pain in the arse, because you cant silence them of a night time.

Theres nothing worse then trying to get to sleep and having some muppet driving up and down showing off with his exhaust stupidly loud.

I mean people moan about music, but 99% of people who have their music loud, generally turn it down at decent hours, but with exhausts theres no getting away from it.

And with people getting ever louder and louder exhausts, I think there is going to have be something done sooner or later, and if a blanket ban is the only the way they can enforce the law, then there aint much they can do.

I cant see the busies sound testing every exhaust at the roadside.

As per usual, its one or two sad individuals, who go out of their way to make their exhaust as stupidly loud as possible, and constantly rag it around housing estates at night, and along the same road backwards and forwards, that will eventually ruin it for everyone.

Yes and look how much shit thats caused.

And how can you compare testing window tints which is either a pass or a fail based on a light test that has no influences from the surrounding enviroment to a sound test that will be influenced by the amount of noise?

Also, you define a reasonable limit for the volume...

Its easier to just say fook it, you wanna keep making ya exhausts louder and louder, and we will just ban the effin lot of em, anything modified and ye get 3 points on ye license.

That sounds fair to me.

As I say though, its the minority that are wrecking it for everyone else. In a perfect world, everyone would have some kind of respect for other people, but this isnt a perfect world and there are a lot of nobeds around who make their car exhausts as loud as possible and go around tooting their horn at all hours of night, and these are the nobs that are going to eventually cause modified exhausts to be illegal.

Why should people not get a good nights sleep every night, just because you like your exhaust loud and like to return from cruises at all hours of the night, sometimes with ya mates following ya, and causing a disturbance everywhere you go??

Personally, if something is causing distress to other people, I believe it should be banned. I dont believe in a blanket ban, but its probably the only practical way to enforce a ban im afraid.

Does the tinting laws stop people getting illegal tints? Nope, so that should have a blanket ban too imho. Either that or they should remove the ban altogether.

Something similar was meant to be passed years ago anyway in ireland...as in banning Modified Cars as a whole..cos of the number of accidents they cause with boy racers etc........that never took place tho...


In a perfect world...people could get sleep..and there would be no overweight lads razzin round New Brighton waterfront in that little Red Metro...but in a perfect world...communism would also reign supreme...i can see this goin the same way personally....being forgotten about after a while...it is a good idea tho i must admit..they have a limit on the DB range of racin cars..y not road cars...if your stupid enough to have a ridiculous pipe..you should be shot

i wouldn't buy a loud exhaust unless it was my only option to improve the performance... loud exhausts arent necessarily better soundng... i like a nice smooth bellow... altho wot are they going to be about scoobies etc which are fairly loud as standard? the older ones anyway

Its modified exhausts that are banned. This is why it cant go on a dB rating, because some cars have louder exhausts as standard for performance reasons.

So long as the exhaust wasnt modified, it doesnt matter how loud it is (although dont think manufacturers would be releasing cars with insanely loud exhausts to get away with it, as they have strict regulations to follow themselves).
