A05980 Memo:

BILL NUMBER: A5980

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to providing penalties for the operation of a motor vehicle
without required muffler and exhaust system equipment
PURPOSE OF THE BILL : This bill would increase penalties for
operation of a motor vehicle and motorcycle without required exhaust
systems

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1 and 2 of this bill are amend
sections 375 and 381 of the vehicle and traffic law as it relates to
increasing penalties for installing an illegal exhaust system on
motorcycles and motor vehicles. A first offense violation shall be
punishable by a fine up to $100 and/or removal of the muffler and
exhaust system. A second offense violation shall be punishable by a
fine no more than $500 and/or removal of the muffler and exhaust
system. A third offense violation shall be punishable by a fine no
more than $1000 and/or removal of the muffler and exhaust system
and/or the imposition of two points on the violator's record.

JUSTIFICATION : Across the state communities have been struggling
with cars that are altered to make them extremely loud and often
unsafe. A vehicle with an altered muffler and exhaust system can
literally shake the windows of a home as it speeds down the street at
night. Unfortunately, enforcement of current laws is insufficient as
offenders, pay the fine and merely continue to violate the law. This
bill would increase the penalties for altering mufflers on motor
vehicles and motorcycles.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE : None.

EFFECTIVE DATE : This act shall take effect on the one hundred
eightieth day after it shall have become law.
