Could loud pipes soon be outlawed in New Brunswick?â€¨â€¨ They could be if Bathurst town council has their way.
According to local radio station MAX 104.9 FM, town council in the northern New Brunswick municipality has had it with noisy bikers shattering the neighbourhood peace and quiet, and they’re ready to take action.
Not only are they considering a local bylaw to crack down on open exhausts, they’re hoping to get other towns on board to help create provincial legislation against noisy bikes.
The city of Edmonton has already written a bylaw to fight loud motorcycles, and now Bathurst may follow suit. Although no details have yet been released, councillor Graham Wiseman suggested that the bylaw would allow police to somehow check the sound level of motorcycle exhaust systems and ticket offenders.
Keep your exhausts tuned… literally.
