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 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.
