Welcome everybody to 2019 in California, and all of the new laws. Trying to stay legal and out of trouble I was doing my research for all of the new laws that came into effect as of the beginning of the year and ran across a couple of rant videos on Youtube about a new noise compliance law for vehicles that included motorcycles. It would appear that the state has, in an effort to crack down on street racing, passed a law limiting the noise level of on road motor vehicles to 95 db, getting rid of the fix it ticket warning system and paving the way for a $1,000.00 fine, and here's the kicker, a mandatory visit to a Bureau of Automotive Repair Referee for a compliance inspection where they can go through your vehicle with a microscope looking for non-C.A.R.B. compliant parts to enforce compliance. I haven't looked up all of the details as I wasn't looking up those law changes in particular but felt compelled to share this with the group as a means of allowing everybody to get ahead of it. Sounds like another ill conceived means to an unachievable end to me, but then again this is California so it wasn't really shocking. Let the games begin!
