We shouldn’t have to tolerate noisy mufflers


Societies all over the world are concerned about the deterioration of the environment, yet here in Canada we have people who change factory-installed mufflers with noisy mufflers so they can let everybody else know how cool they are to make this kind of noise.

Why do we have to share the world with people such as this? All around us the environment is falling apart so why do we as a society tolerate such childish behaviour?

There was an article in the news from Switzerland where they confiscated a car with a loud muffler, fined the owner, made a garage change the muffler back to its original factory settings and gave the bill to the owner of the car. That’s what should happen to unfortunate people such us them.

However here in Canada that seems to be OK. Nobody complains and in addition the police seem to tolerate this kind of behaviour.
