violation ticket for exhaust question help?
any one knows what happpens when you get a second ticket for having a exhaust on your car. i have a Thermal one that i took off a year ago because of a f**K up high way patrol, but now i want to put it back on. what happens if i happen to get pull over for it again. will it just be another fixing ticket or what? i heard that they may tow your car because that is the second time, but don't know. any answers or comments would help me decide if i should put it back on or no. thanks

with your last ticket, with it a fix-it-ticket? and did you have CHP investigate your car to check for any violations - and then sign your fix-it-ticket that no violations were noticed during the inspection...

is so - then you should be just fine.

...

or was it an actual moving violation that was given to you?

If you get too many tickets for the same thing and you apear in front of a judge, that judge might not be so happy seeing as though you've been asked SEVERAL times to correct a problem - but you fail to do anything about it.

no i just got the ticket because he said it was a modify exhaust and that was illegal, but every other Honda like has one or a generic one. i think mine lookd suspicious because it sits low. not even that loud. Are TRD ones leagal on road use.

modified exhaust is NOT illegal... wave


https://www.celicahobby.com/tech/pdf/CHP_Bulletin-Exhaust.pdf

Modified exhausts are completely legal now (as of 2001 or around there), the only thing is though it can't exceed 95db. Which from what I hear is pretty damn loud!

You can have a 10 inch tip there if you wanted to as long as it is NOT harmful to other drivers, etc... but you get my point grin

dB Sound
0 threshold of hearing
10 pin dropping at 10 m
20 soft whisper
30 library
40 quiet conversation
42 my computer
50 normal conversation
60 a busy office
70 vacuum cleaner
80 inside a small car
90 lawn mower
95 legal exhaust (at 20 inches)
100 large orchestra
110 rock music
120 boom stereo in car
130 earphones up loud/ jet plane
140 air raid siren
150 military rifle

I think cops might have a sound measurer to check it you're legal. I would guess that sound intensity varies with the inverse square of the distance from which it is measured.


Every 10 dB up is 10 times as much power. The unit bel is named after Alexander Graham Bell and was invented at Bell labs.

Mufflers are not required for motorcycles. There is no sound restriction on them.

...and the exhaust cannot bypass any emmissions control, i.e. catalytic converter.
