Hawaii Bill to Ban Most Aftermarket Exhaust Systems Legislation (H.B. 2209)

Hawaii Bill to Ban Most Aftermarket Exhaust Systems Legislation (H.B. 2209) to require official inspection stations to test vehicles to determine if their exhaust systems “emit noise noticeably greater than that emitted by the vehicle as equipped from the factory” was introduced in Hawaii. Under the bill, inspection stations found to have issued a certificate of inspection in violation of this provision could be fined up to $1,000 and have their inspection permits suspended or revoked.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Hawaii House Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Oppose H.B. 2209

•H.B. 2209 provides no test by which vehicles could be tested. Many states have established noise limits for modified exhaust systems based on an easy to administer objective test standard (SAE J1169) to a fair noise limit of 95-decibels.
•H.B. 2209 would force inspectors to fail vehicles for violation of an unspecified test.
•H.B. 2209 does not provide inspection stations with decibel readings on factory-installed exhaust systems.
•H.B. 2209 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.
•H.B. 2209 would make it impossible for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Hawaii House Transportation Committee immediately to request their opposition to H.B. 2209.

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.

The thing about bills like this, the people it will affect are the type of people that will not do anything about it.

Unfortunately most politicians don't feel that they've done their jobs unless they pass several bills during their term.
Whether they're needed or not.

Funny part, is most stock Harleys are louder than 95% of modified cars. The only intelligent way to make the law is a set decible limit at a fixed distance.

1). Our legislators aren't that intelligent.
2). I'm for it, but it better be enforced on; The Bus, (the upcoming Train), leaf blowers, weed eaters, cuz & sista yelling at each other, mopeds, C&C outdoor events, etc.
