Passed a "rule" to "seize" cars?
Firstly, the information source? If this was a passed rule, it would have been all over auto websites and blogs.

Secondly, I dont think the percentage of cars with aftermarket exhaust is even 0.0001% of all the cars in India. In that case, the government wont even bother with such a rule and leave it to the RTO's! The windows tints however were on every other car.

Thirdly, the government can not define what a free flow exhaust, in layman terms it would mean anything that sounds loud, and the cops would then stop everybody with a db level violation for which they first need to have a DB meter to check, which AFAIK no cops in NCR have.

And fourthly, I think you are talking about the recent commissioner crackdown in Kerala which was widely publicized on facebook by my friends from down south. Get your facts right and then post it please?

We as a car community which is widely popular should not spread rumored news around. Thank you.

Residents may soon get relief from noise pollution caused by motor vehicles in and around the city, especially through cars and bikes. The Bangalore City Traffic Police have started targeting mechanics as well as bike owners who get their bikes altered. Following this crackdown, youths are finding it tough to find a mechanic to get their bike alterations done.
They seem to be targeting bikers but the article also mentions cars

On a lighter note, from the link Captain Slow posted,

"For two-stroke engine vehicles like Yamaha RX 100 we used to do silencer alteration called 'muffler'. For four-stroke engine vehicles like Bajaj Pulsar, the silencer alteration was called 'booter'. "

I think its too little too late, lets see how this is implemented. Now a days I am seeing even the Dio's are being modded with these free flow exhaust, people will scare away all directions when they hear the noise and the vehicle passes by they are shocked to see its just a scooter that sounded like a litter class vehicle.

Rules ,rules and rules. Are any of these rules helping a common man? Is Free flow exhaust such a problem? Removal of Tint was a Tuglaqian reform .Isn't the narrow roads a bigger problem? Lane cutting taxis and autos aren't a problem? There are more issues to put ones attention to.BTP must wake up .Let them start by educating people before applying rules.
Regarding engine sound ,if a rule comes in like this, almost all the imported bikes and Bullets will have to be out of the road.
For an owner the car/bike sound is music to the ears, for the uninitiated everything is a noise.Modifications also indicates the love for the vehicle.

Anyway , will be happy if BTP removes all those air horns (musical ones) from the buses,trucks and transport vehicles.

PS:Let this rule also not become a way to squeeze money out of citizens.

There is a regulation,which says that a stock exhaust should not be louder than xx db.
Remember,how RE had to switch to long exhausts from the stock short bottle one's.

Right but how come every time its the aam Aadmi who has to face this? Auto and Taxis never get fined or stopped for their bling/bling disco lights or their ultra noisy exhausts.

In another thread I remember reading where a bhpian was fined for having after market DRLs!

This is not a first for bangalore iirc. Many years ago during the era of two stroke bikes there was a similar drive against expansion chambered equipped bikes.

I saw cops today stopping an R1, his fault? He was looking whacky for wearing full body protection and gloves and a helmet as well. And the usual sound of an inline 4 engine was an added bonus for the cops to levy a fine. I was witnessing this entire drama, poor biker didn't know kannada and neither did I, otherwise I'd have helped :-\. Highly dumb cops.

Default State declares war on honking, air pollution

I read this in Todays TOI, Bangalore Mirror.

http://www.bangaloremirror.com/banga.../44778346.cms?

Rs 1,000 Fine for the first time and Rs 2,000 after that.

Quote:
Incessant honking and driving a polluting vehicle will now set you back by Rs 1,000 the first time and Rs 2,000 after that, thanks to an amendment to the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, that comes into effect immediately. Earlier, motorcycles were fined Rs 300, cars Rs 600 and heavy vehicles Rs 800.
Quote:
The infringements the amendment will cover include using altered, shrill horns, altering the silencer of vehicles, and failing to have an up-to-date emission certificate.

They do cause a little trouble but nothing as bad as the Auto Drivers! Who start go wherever they feel like. Drive at 15 kmph in the middle of the road.
