Loud Exhausts

Dil, please ask the Legal Eagle if there is a law against modified exhausts on cars that can be heard from the other side of the world. They do my head in! Dara in Cork.

Hi Dara,

 

Many people think that because they have an NCT certificate they can do anything with their cars between the time of the NCT and the next time it is due.  This is not so.  The NCT is only a snap-shot of the compliance of the car with the regulations at the date of the last NCT.

 

Under the Vehicle Equipment Regulations there are very specific noise levels to which cars must comply and it is a criminal offence to exceed those noise levels.  My advice to you, Dara, is that if one particular motorist is annoying you with his loud car make a complaint to the Gardai and they may even seize the car.
