I live down in southeast missouri and got pulled over a few days ago for my exhaust being "too loud" when it's nowhere near as loud as some of the trucks running straights and glass packs. The cop didn't give me a ticket but I was curious to see how much it would've been so I started reading about it online and didn't really find anything. But there was a post somewhere saying that someone heard MO was close to dropping that law. So I'm wondering if anyone has any insight on wether that is true or not? I don't really see it happening because that is a pretty easy way for them to get some money..

Indiana has a db level you need to meet while measured from a distance and rpm, same with music. Here is the best part I don't know any cops that have a measuring device on them, and I know a lot of cops.
I got a warning when I was running open down pipe.
Now apparently if you drive a motorcycle or truck the laws don't apply to you.



IC 9-19-8-3
Operation of muffler or noise dissipative device
Sec. 3. A motor vehicle must be equipped with a muffler or other noise dissipative device that meets the following conditions:
(1) Is in good working order.
(2) Is in constant operation to prevent excessive noise.
As added by P.L.2-1991, SEC.7.
IC 9-19-8-4
Muffler cutouts and bypasses
Sec. 4. A motor vehicle may not be equipped with any of the following:
(1) A muffler cutout. (2) A bypass.
(3) Any similar device.

Must be a city or county code db level.

In my neck of the woods there are laws against modifying exhaust but nothing like a db limit. I actually got a ticket a few years back for having no muffler on my car when it was almost stock just because the guy wanted to be a dick, it wasn't loud at all. Went to court for it (I had to being under 18 in my state) and got it thrown out just for showing up lol

When I got pulled over it was a state trooper and he was old as hell so I think that had a lot to do with him thinking it was too loud lol or like slow4doorek said in his situation, he was just being a dick because he can get away with it

I am sure that law is deep in the cut and only for use when a officer is feeling frisky. There are 15+ old hotrods in mid-mo that are so loud it shakes the ground.... legal though... gay.
