Calgary has started inforcing it's 96db noise limit

Calgary has started inforcing it's 96db noise limit. It will be a $200 fine for registering over. They will be mailing out tickets ala a photoradar type device. No takers on the first day I guess everyone put there stock exhausts back on LOL.

I don't think car owners have too much to worry about, those damn Harley Davidsons make alot more noise. Hopefully it will get those loud and abnoxious Harley's off the streets.

+1

A good way to sort of determine the db level is by comparison:

Boeing 737 or DC-9 aircraft at one nautical mile (6080 ft) before landing (97 dB); power mower (96 dB); motorcycle at 25 ft (90 dB). Newspaper press (97 dB).
Is your car louder than a lawnmower? No? Then you're good.
