Hundreds of charges have been laid in a wide-ranging noisemaker sting operation, Peel Police’s Road Safety Services division revealed late last month. The charges were laid as part of the “Project Noisemaker” campaign, which saw police working to stop and ticket vehicles with excessively-loud exhaust systems throughout the region.
The campaign, which ran throughout the summer, saw 576 provincial offence notes laid, with enforcement officers also encouraging drivers to avoid modified exhaust systems that cause unnecessary noise on roadways. Vehicles with loud exhaust systems were stopped by members of the Road Safety Services, who completed a full inspection of their vehicles. Charges laid in the campaign were primarily laid under the Improper Muffler and Unnecessary Noise statutes of the Highway Traffic Act.
These charges includef fines of $110, payable upon conviction. Anyone with information concerning aggressive driving or illegal street racing activities can contact the police by calling (905) 453-3311.
