Over the past few months I have read several articles and posts on loud exhaust. Once I lived in a state that had a law that if a LEO could hear your car audio system from 75 feet (or greater) away, you could be cited.

That state's courts deemed that law unconstitutional.

I am not trying to start a debate here, but my question is this:
If it is unconstitutional to outlaw loud noise from a vehicle audio system, why is it not unconstitutional to have a law banning loud exhaust? Believe me, I don't care for either, but am curious on the topic.

Mr. Matlock??? Thanks all.

There is a law on the books down here on the car audio being heard at 25 yards and the LEOs say it is unenforceable. The only way I could see they could enforce one on MCs is the pipes that say "off road only" stamped on them.

Move to Arkansas, there is no law even requiring a muffler on a motorcycle.
