Just fill his exhaust with gap filler, while no-one is watching of course. Problem solved. Consider it doing a favour by saving the police and court time.

Call the Police non-emergency number and ask to speak to the Traffic section. Give them the plate number, vehicle description and owner's address and description. Tell them what you told us. Prepare popcorn and a good window seat.

Where can you get your exhaust tested for db ratings? I've been really curious how loud mine is.

If it's aftermarket and you are asking that questoin, then it probably is too loud, but then you knew that anyway.

So I gotta ask.

How come Harleys and other hogs are out there riding around? I haven't once see one get ticketed.
Especially since a speeding bike is generally a lot louder than a speeding car?

Cops prefer giving VIs for the loud exhausts...that way they can't just dispute the VT and continue riding with it that way. They need to pass an inspection within 30 days at the most.BTW...I know of 40 loud exhaust Harleys that have been VI'd over here on Fantasy Island.

RCMP offered free testing last summer. Here's my bike being tested, it passed at 6K rpms with an aftermarket exhaust.

Alternatively you can buy cheap dB readers at The Source, they'll be accurate enough for you to know if you're > 90dB.

I'm pretty sure the limit for a bike is louder than a car by 10 dB, yet that aside most bikes (even Harleys) are decent if you keep the RPMs down, which any good rider would around the police. My bike is very loud at high RPMs, yet I don't drive at WOT often so I haven't gotten a ticket. I suspect a lot of Harley riders are the same.

His red Civic is abnoxiously loud and the problem is he drives it around the neighborhood for about an hour for no reason and during that time, he's doing u-turns and parking. According to my wife, she says he just in the parking spot moving it forward and back and that's when the exhaust is loudest (as well as when he's doing U-turns). It's really annoying and it wakes up my baby when she's napping in the day.
I actually finally saw the car over the weekend and asked my wife and she said that was the one she saw.
If I can't call in for the loud exhaust, can I call it in for his front window tint? Seems like he just got the car recently.
I do have to admit that I really like how his car is done up and it's something I'd love to do myself, but his driving habits are what's annoying my wife. She's scared to approach him cause she doesn't know what type of person he is and wants to just call the cops the next time. Just don't know if we can do that cause it's during the day.
So, I finally witnessed it for myself what the guy is doing. First off, he seems to really love showing off his car. He was with a bunch of friends with his car parked on the wrong side of the street posing in with the car while his friends were taking pictures.
Then I witnessed his forward and backwards thing my wife was talking about. Seems like he's learning how to drive a manual by constantly moving forward a little and then backwards in the parking spot. I only wish he didn't do that in the neighborhood and went somewhere where his loud exhaust wouldn't be annoying to anyone. Well, anyways, hopefully he'll learn soon before my wife goes crazy listening to him or before he wears out his clutch.

Why motorcycles are allowed to be nearly twice as loud as cars I'll never understand...

I think it's because of the size of motorcycles compared to cars.
The piping in cars is much longer, can fit more cats, resonators, mufflers so by the time the noise comes out it is more muffled.

Bull. I've been around some pretty quiet motorcycles.

That's because the average motorcycle out there is probably a 600cc+ death machine. It has a ridiculous power the weight ratio, and unfortunately for you, that's the norm for bikes. Many bikes are on the road are ready for the track and that's OEM.

It's like if everybody drove a monstrous V12 italian supercar, but they don't. They drive little dinky Matrix, Mazda 3 and Fits and thus, the average car isn't a tuned sports machine that's loud, it's quite quiet.


And on that note...
I heard that BC is banning 2-stroke bikes???
I think that will quiet things down a bit.

Crawl under it when he's not looking and spray some WD-40 into his clutch.

Just wait until he learns how to drive it and he can take it out of his parking spot

As for posing with a car he doesn't yet know how to drive...
