PostSubject: Exhaust???   Mon Aug 11, 2008 4:02 pm

i was pulled on st vincents street on friday for wait for it ....


..... a loud exhaust!!!!!!!!!!!


i asked for it to be tested via a db meter and apparently there was no need to do it as the exhaust is LOUDER than standard!!!!!!!!!

so according to road traafic act 1986 or some cr*p like tht you cant hav a backbox that makes your car louder than it was to begin with Rolling Eyes

i ended up after a few mins of argueing only a fine which iv been told i can appeal as its not an offence and they never tested me via a db meter

they were just trying to find something to charge me for

Using there powers here it seems. Bored boys in blue looking for some drama and action by making waves.

I woulda kindly told them to stick the fine where the sun don't shine, but then I woulda prob spent the nite in their homely company behind metal curtains Sad

of course they need to test the noise level in a Controlled Area...so i dont see how they could fine you, after all, how loud are Lambos and the likes when they whizz past you.

IIRC to test the Noise, you need to hold the engine revs at 3k as this is apparently when its loudest?
