As Complaints Escalate, Fort Bragg Police Will Be Holding a Maximum Enforcement Period for Illegally Modified Exhausts


The following is a post from the Fort Bragg Police Department’s Facebook page:

The Fort Bragg Police Department has received an increase number of complaints and concerns from citizens regarding excessively loud mufflers and exhaust systems on cars and motorcycles in the past few months. Officers are actively working to fix and educate motorist on this issue.

California vehicle code section 27150(a) states in Part:
“(a) Every motor vehicle subject to registration shall at all times be equipped with an adequate muffler in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise, and no muffler or exhaust system shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass, or similar device.”

California vehicle code section 27151(a) states in Part:
“(a) A person shall not modify the exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of the vehicle so that the vehicle is not in compliance with the provisions of Section 27150…”

The Fort Bragg Police Department will be holding a special maximum enforcement event to help with this matter in the coming weeks!!! A Press release will be coming on the event soon.



  1. I personally don’t understand it!

    If a person needs attention and recognition that bad why command it by destroying the peaceful enjoyment of your neighbors?

    Love One Another!

    I would prefer it if you would blow heart shaped bubbles out of your exhaust in my neighborhood all hours of the day and night!

    I would run to my window in sheer delight to catch a glimpse of you instead of shaking my fist and growling!

  2. Must be a big lull in police work, to force drivers to plug the holes in their mufflers, no fires no wrecks no parking tickets, selling tickets to the ball at the mall, homeless problems?
