Halton Police targeting  ‘loud mufflers’ and other vehicle modifications

If you’re someone who modified their vehicle for attention—congratulations! You now have the full attention of the Halton Regional Police Service. 

If you’re someone who modified their vehicle for attention—congratulations! You now have the full attention of the Halton Regional Police Service. 

The service said it will be initiating Project #Noisemaker on June 10: a region-wide project that will run through October aimed to address concerns of motor vehicles with illegal modifications.

“[We have] received numerous complaints from across the region regarding loud and unnecessary noise from motor vehicles which have been modified by removing the mufflers or modifying the exhaust system”, said Halton Police.

“It has been observed through recent proactive enforcement that this unnecessary noise is often found to be accompanied by other illegal vehicle modifications, unsafe vehicle conditions and aggressive driving behaviours.”

As part of Project #Noisemaker, officers from the District Response Teams and Regional Traffic Services will collaborate with partner agencies to conduct inspections through an Operation Wreck Check.

The task force will target illegal street racing activity through Project ERASE (eliminate racing activity on streets everywhere) while partnering with Municipal Enforcement Officers to conduct enforcement of the Town of Oakville’s motorcycle noise by law.
