Canada to Start Checking Pipes Noise

The authorities in Quebec, Canada, has initiated a project aiming to reduce the noise pollution: peace officers with proper training are to check the noise levels for mopeds, scooters and motorcycles.

This pilot project is expected to start this spring and state officials declared that those found in violation of the current Highway Safety Code (stating the maximal noise levels) are liable to a $100 to $200 fine.

Those who will refuse to cooperate in measuring the noise level are liable to $200 to $300 fines. The measurement method was developed by a Laval University researcher, the Ministry of Transport and the Societe de l'Assurance Automobile Quebec.

So next time when it comes down to “loud pipes save lives”, keep in mind that stock noise levels save money.
