Motorcycle noise pollution
Original post made by Paloaltojon on Jun 16, 2008
Last week I had to suspend my dinner conversation twice while unmuffled motorcycles cruised by the University Ave restaurant where I was dining. This past weekend, I was jolted out of a sound sleep at 2:15 AM when an unmuffled motorcycle roared past my Hamilton Ave home (I'd bet he hit 80 mph by the time he rounded the dog-leg at Chaucer and continued down the Hamilton Ave straight-away.)
It is my impression that it is increasingly popular to equip motorcycles with straight pipes, i.e., unmuffled. While it is not the biggest issue in our community, maybe a few of us should ask the chief of police to just-say-no.
