9.44.330 Muffler and exhaust system.


A. For the purpose of this section and if not otherwise modified in this section, the term "motor vehicle" means any motorized vehicle which is self-propelled, including but not limited to a minibike, go-cart, motorcycle, snowmachine or automobile. Vehicles operated on rails are exempt from regulation.


B. Every motor vehicle shall at all times be equipped with a muffler and tight exhaust system in good working order and in constant operation to prevent:


1. Excessive or unusual noise; and


2. Fumes from escaping into the vehicle.


C. No person may use a muffler cutout, bypass or similar device upon a vehicle nor may any person modify or change the exhaust muffler, intake muffler or any other noise abatement device of a motor vehicle in a manner such that the noise emitted by the motor vehicle is increased above that emitted by the motor vehicle as originally manufactured.


D. The engine and power mechanism of a motor vehicle shall be equipped and adjusted so as to prevent the escape of excessive fumes or smoke.


E. No person may operate either a motor vehicle or combination of vehicles at any time or under any condition of grade, load, acceleration or deceleration in such a manner as to exceed the following noise limit standards:


1. No person may operate a motor vehicle, except in an event for which a permit has been obtained pursuant to chapter 15.70, with a noise level in excess of 85 dBA at 50 feet from the center of the lane of travel or the nearest property line, whichever is closer. Furthermore, no person may operate a motor vehicle in a residential area after 8:00 p.m. or before 8:00 a.m. with a noise level in excess of 75 dBA at 50 feet from the center of the lane of travel or the nearest property line, whichever is closer. However, nothing in this subsection E.1 shall be construed to permit the operation of a snowmachine in violation of section 9.42.040.


2. No new motor vehicle, except one designated for competition purposes only, may be sold or offered for sale unless engine noise produced by the vehicle is limited to not more than 85 dBA at 50 feet.


3. Subsection E of this section applies to the total noise from a vehicle or combination of vehicles and may not be construed as limiting or precluding the enforcement of any other provision of this Code relating to a motor vehicle muffler and exhaust system for noise control.


F. The police department shall adopt regulations and procedures for the accurate measurement of motor vehicle noise and provide for courtesy compliance testing.

(CAC 9.44.330; AO No. 78-72)

Pay attention to "C"....pretty damn straight forward and strict. We live in Cali now or something? Damn.

Remember though, if you get pulled over for noise, they can't prove it without "accurate measurement of motor vehicle noise"

I made a new thread regarding codes that would apply to some of us, mostly aftermarket info...

I dunno, some 50yo lady probably....

It's gibbrish, they will rarely care if you have aftermarket exhaust, unless it's really loud, even then...if they don't measure, they can suck me

Judging by the number of trucks we got up here, and the percentage of those trucks with the "loader than stock" dual exhausts, I'd say they'd have to ticket half the state to actually enforce that rule.

Yep, and all of us truck owners are proud of that fact!!! I guess I don't HAVE to run at 4000rpms all the time, could probably rev lower and have happier neighbors, but o well, truck complex.
