Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet has written a book on illegal motorcycle noise. It is a visual guide to illegal motorcycle equipment, intended to make it easier for law enforcement officials to identify illegal equipment and thus issue more citations. Please order the book, read the book, and recommend it to your local law enforcement agencies.
Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet has local chapters in many states. Our local chapters are conducting petition drives, testifying before city councils, hosting community meetings, speaking to community groups, and meeting with police officials. Our monthly “Noisy Dozen” award is issued to major noise polluters and has gained a significant amount of media attention.
