Georgia Fails to Pass Pro-Hobby Exhaust Noise Bill as Legislature Adjourns

The Georgia legislature failed to pass SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 185) that would have protected enthusiasts from unfair exhaust noise citations. The bill would have allowed the use, sale, alteration, or installation of car mufflers that meet a 95-decibel noise limit. The bill provided an opportunity for vehicle hobbyists to install and use aftermarket modified exhaust systems that meet an objective decibel limit under a fair and predictable test. The House Motor Vehicles Committee failed to advance the bill prior to adjournment.

Thank you to everyone who voiced support for this effort.
