If concerned about noise, ticket vehicles with illegal exhaust systems, he says
TO THE EDITOR:
I see a lot of "No Engine Braking" signs lately.
I have never seen a sign saying "No Straight Pipes."
If we were truly concerned about noise, we'd ticket vehicles with illegal exhaust systems.
Bikers change their exhaust systems to make them louder. This is illegal. Yet, no one says anything, so why do we complain about truckers trying to save their brakes?
An engine brake is not near as loud as a motorcycle or a pickup with straight pipes.
