I have nothing against motorcyclists, and some of their machines are beautiful, chromed and shinny, high revving, and high powered. Why is it that there are some who are insistent upon making their ‘bikes” so extremely noisy ? It must be a “Hey Marcel, watch this” factor at work.
The excessive noise emanating from illegal motorcycle exhaust pipes is unnerving to most people. It travels for blocks from Coast Highway and our main roadways and resonates into our normally quiet residential neighborhoods.
A few inconsiderate motorcycle riders roar up and down my neighborhood’s residential streets at all hours of day and night with their excessive exhaust noise disturbing our animals, our neighborhood tranquility, even our sleep. Their speed and their “get out of my way” attitude is endangering the safety of the young children of our neighborhood and those who walk for their health.
Toni Iseman once promoted an aggressive and successful crack down on these few riders via an anti excessive vehicle noise campaign. She should revive it as a new beginning toward “zero tolerance” when it comes to vehicle noise violators and speeders.
Safer and quieter streets in our neighborhoods would sure be nice again.
