more trouble for nj , this time for loud exhaust

Legislation to Establish Exhaust Noise Limit Reintroduced in New Jersey
Legislation (A.B. 757) that would require the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to prescribe a decibel limit to which all aftermarket mufflers sold in the state would have to be certified to operate has been introduced in the New Jersey State Legislature. The bill, introduced by Assemblyman Robert Gordon, gives no instruction as to what the decibel limit should be.

In some states, noise limits for modified exhaust systems are established by a SEMA model bill (attached) and applicable to an easy to administer test standard. The SEMA model provides for the testing of vehicle exhaust noise to a standard adopted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) with an established noise limit of 95-decibels (SAE J1169). Under the SAE standard, a sound meter is placed 20 inches from the exhaust outlet at a 45 degree angle and the engine is revved to three quarters of maximum rated horsepower. The highest decibel reading is then recorded.

To date, with the popular support of vehicle enthusiasts and related businesses, the model has been enacted in California, Washington State and Maine. This year, the SEMA model was introduced in Virginia.

Contact members of the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee (List Below) to request their opposition to A.B. 757 and their support for a 95-decibel limit under SAE J1169

The SEMA model removes subjective provisions in the law and force compliance with an objectively measured standard. Under the standard, exhaust noise could not exceed a sound reading of 95-decibels under a fair and predictable test.


The SEMA model would benefit consumers, the aftermarket industry and police officers who are charged with enforcing the law.


The SEMA model would remedy the enforcement policy currently used by police officers in which nearly all exhaust system modifications are considered illegal, even where noise levels are not excessive or unusual. This policy leaves enthusiasts, exhaust system manufacturers and dealers without recourse, despite having the law on their side.


The SEMA model recognizes that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.


The SEMA model removes authority for the calculation of a decibel limit from state regulators and puts it back in the hands of your elected representatives.

DONT DELAY! Please contact members of the New Jersey Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support of the 95-decibel limit under SAE J1169. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to stevem@sema.org. Thank you for your assistance.

dam you guys are getting pwn.t

remember, its not the decibel limit that alerts the cops, its the car its coming from. you can have a super loud exhaust on a stang and go by a cop, and he wont even flinch. or you can have a nice deep exhaust on a civic and drive by a cop and hell drop his donut and whatever else he was doing to give chase.

yeah most cops let it go but you gotta watch out for the ******* cops who seem to be all gathering at the parsippany police department. We all joke around and say these young guys who are cops in this town have the John Wayne Syndrome , ive gotten heat for my exhaust a few times ive been pulled over..more so cause they were looking to give me something less.

If they do not universally apply this to all motor vehicles including loud *** Harley's and Big *** dump trucks and such. I hope NJ gets the **** sued out of them.

If you look back in past post of mine and on 3.8 you will see I told you this was happening soon across the country by 2007 and federal nation wide car inspections is coming a year later

Before you get a warm fuzzy about being safe in your state. SEMA standards will be applied to all states in 2007. So start thinking about what you want to do now to quiet your car!!!!

or buy a old muscle car that is exempt due to the year(i think anything under '72 is considered smog exempt) and run open header and not give a **** about these stupid laws.

or just get a bike and laugh when they try to pull you over as you take two quick rights and the cruiser cant keep up.

But what are you going to do when they show up at your door arrest you and impound and sell your bike???? You might outrun them but they know where you live. So unless you are going to live in the other world and not have an address you will assimilate or be destroyed!!!!
