Anyone Get Cited Yet for Updated Exhaust Law?

Postby 3tspapat [OP] » Jan 10 2019, 9:47pm

Just checking to see if anyone in our truck community has been cited for excessively loud exhaust. Seems like they are mostly targeting imports and domestic sport cars.

In CA...nothing would surprise me. I dont even know what TX laws are. I am sure there is something. But unless you are super loud...they probably wont bother you here.

Edit:

Hmmm...found this for TX...though not from an official state site:

Decibel Rule
Unlike other states that enforce a decibel limit on the noise produced by exhaust systems, Texas does not have a decibel law. However, the Texas Transporation Code states: "A motor vehicle shall be equipped with a muffler in good working condition that continually operates to prevent excessive or unusual noise."

From what I have seen here, it is mostly motorcycles that are targeted. Next up are fart pipes on imports. So long as you have a muffler and are reasonable then there should be no problem.

Yes for GVWR 6000 and under but local LEOs around here feel the need to be fair and seem to hassle everyone.
