Default Got my NYC loud exhaust ticket dismissed today

Late March, I posted on the forum that I got stopped in Flushing, Queens, NY by stupid cops for having a loud exhaust pipe.

All I have is a Prodrive axel-back, because I thought it was the quiestest and deepest sound compared to the HKS, Blitz, and Greddy.

Today, I went to court to defend myself.. the judge found insufficient evidence to render a guilty verdict and dismissed all charges. There were 2 other guys with the same exhaust tickets all got dismissed.

I hope that sends the cops issuing these things a message.

The cop never performed a real decibel meter test, so he can't legally charge me with just a visual inspections.

The whole ordeal is a learning experience, when you see cops checking out your car from the corner or a far, don't play your radio loud or rev the car too loud or else you'll get noticed and they'll take that you are their meal ticket.

As for going to court, if you get a pink ticket, just go to court early. I went somewhat early and had to wait 1.5 hrs on line standing than another 1 hr sitting before being called. Go early, be prepared to come up with a story or receipt that your fixed your car. I bought my recent NYS inspection receipt to show the judge that my car passed inspection and was enough to void the cop's claim.

Nice job! That's something that can benefit all of us from arbitrary enforcement of muffler laws.
