Hopefully this thread will stay professional, unlike the last one.
Anyway, SEMA is working on amending this BS via AB390, as there has been significant confusion in the "real world" about the original AB1824 law...............
Bill To Amend California’s Exhaust Noise Law Progressing
SEMA-sponsored legislation to restore law enforcement’s ability to issue “fix-it” tickets instead of citations for exhaust noise violations and broken
mufflers in California has cleared its first hurdle. The bill (AB 390) passed the state’s transportation committee March 25 and will be considered next
by the assembly committee on appropriations.
The SEMA Action Network is asking supporters to email members of the appropriations committee to encourage them to support the legislation.
AB 390 seeks to repeal the section of a 2018 law (AB 1824) that amended how state law enforcement officials issue citations for these violations.
Under the current law, violations may lead to an immediate fine. Previously, “fix-it” tickets allowed motorists 30 days to correct the violation.
The 2018 law generated significant concern within the industry and enthusiast community, according to SEMA. The association believes the
proposed amendment will restore clarity for motorists and the companies that manufacture and install exhaust products. The legislation would not
change the state’s 95-decibel exhaust noise limits for motor vehicles.
California assembly members Jim Frazier and Tim Grayson introduced the legislation. Christian Robinson, SEMA’s director of state government
affairs, testified in support of the bill at last month’s hearing.
SEMA also has drafted a “Fact vs. Fiction” document to help generate support for the bill.
