New camera to ticket drivers for loud exhausts?!



So now you don't need the hassle of those pesky cops pulling you over, they just mail the fine to your house. Why is Canada so awesome?!

I see no problem with this .... maybe they'll finally start getting rid of the fart bombs ridden by leather clad fatasses. Such a double standard for bikes right now.

On second thought these could be useful in residential areas that are activated between certain hours.

Is it just me or is Canada really trying to be Anti-Car now a days... if you don't drive a Prius you're an annoyance.

If this does come into effect, they should be only put in residential streets but we all know the greedy government and cops will put them on main streets as well.

I agree, I'm not going to call conspiracy but I think lawmakers countrywide are feeding off each other. Of course they are trying to kill performance cars off, citing [weak] accident statistics, environmental concerns, noise complaints etc.. Put the pieces together: speed limiters, noise tickets, emissions, MTO spot-checks, improper equipment tickets (ie anything not stock).

Insurance companies too of course want nice, safe, new cars that never get into any sort of trouble driven by motorists who will never make claims... Get tickets, make claims (or have a JDM VIN) and they cancel you.

how did i miss this?

I wonder if this will also double as a 'gunshot detector' as they call em in the states? they have em up all over -
but they also listen to everyones conversations & have wifi to zee database..

so under the guise of loud mufflers we get government microphones on the street listening to everything..

I'm all for loud exhausts on bikes, it lets drivers know you're there. If you've ever been on a bike you now how often people turn into your lane, don't even realize you're there and keep driving not knowing they nearly killed you.

These camera's are destined for failure though. Clutch in, coast by, keep driving.

I disagree... it's only been since late 90's early 2000's where the media started to make a big deal about street racing have politicians decided that street racing is an easy way to get most of the population to agree with their views...

since then it's been all down hill, 50 over/stunting, noise, modifications/profiling... the list will just continue to grow from there.

I'm convinced there are UC police at the runs to monitor until someone does something stupid. If you've ever been to the runs, it's only until someone does something utterly retarded do the police come. If it's calm and organized, they never come.

Weird.

I lived in Edmonton and they had the speed camera's, which turned out all claims were dropped by the courts as there was inconsistant evidence. The City's idea of generating revenue failed. Then again, the Provincial Government approved funding to build a new hockey arena. Well half, as Kates stepped up for the other....

Good, I hate loud exhausts that terrorize people with their loud noise.
