“It is absurd that motorcyclists with straight-pipe [exhausts] are not instantly fined. Also, if the police set up on Angell Street on any summer night with technology that measured noise levels, they could [cite] so many motorcyclists that excellent school programs could be funded. The same thing with [stereo] ‘subwoofers’. If we don’t have the technology, let’s buy it. It would pay for itself in no time. Last time I checked, there was not one single [citation] for vehicle noise, even though it has become a shocking deterrent to living a peaceful life on the East Side of Providence.”
