If its too loud, yes, plenty of people.
But not just for the exhaust itself.

Iv been pulled over for mine before. I gave it a bit at the lights and they pulled me over they tested it by telling me to keep my revs @2000 and leave it there while they tested it. It wasn't over the limit which was good. I have 2.5inch with straight through muffler and a hotdog on the end.

There noise can range quiet a bit. A good condition cat and rear resinator and it's probably not going to be that loud to cause trouble. Were a hollowed cat, straight through centre to center muffler and diff dumper is going to be signifactly louder!
Remember the noise is dependent on your right foot - if your foots flat it's going to be making a lot more noise than if you just cruise past a cop.

I've never been done for a loud exhaust & I've had 3 cars with them. I did get done for an Exhaust leak which wasn't real bad tho!
