Just had a lovely run in with the local cops in perth...
Firstly can anyone tell me what undue and excessive noise is??? in a stock standard EB 5.0 Fairy, no exhaust mods yet.
Heres the story anyway... Leaving the post office car park in gossy this morning was already rolling, seen the lights on the corner go green, gave it about half throttle to beat the traffic, no wheel spin. Got about half way accross the road and seen this cop on foot waiving and yelling for me to pull over. so i stopped on the road, he started yelling and told me to pull over in the car park around the corner making well known that he had my plates.
Now my car is in pretty good nick with nothing really to defect me for so he started explaining the hoon laws to me, i tried to explain that the car is standard bar body work but he didn't want to hear it. So i ended up back at the cop shop with him after he walked off with my licence. An hour later i finally get out with nothing but a $100 fine...
So how can a normal cop decide what it and what isn't excessive noise???
So thanks again orificer....

the thing is that they didnt defect it or even have a really good look at it.... how can one p****d off desk jockey cop decide what is to loud and what isnt?
And as far as i can tell the exhaust is still stock, manifold is stock and definately no mods to the engine... i waaassss trying to get a new exhaust this week.

my brother got the exact same "undue and excessive noise" fine on his completely stock nanna spec ef futura.

he got it when he took off from a set of lights (not being d***head or anything) faster then average.

nothing ya can do about it really... some people like just feeling important.

Take em to court and ask exactly how the cop was able to determine the noise was excessive, did he have some metering device.

Otherwise if it was only him its your word against his.

Talk to a solicitor if you believe you are in the right.

And take the time off work, pay court fees/ solicetor fees... for only a $100 fine. I think they have me by the short and curlys, it will cost me more in lost wages than it is worth to maybe win. if they were taking points as well i would consider fighting it.

Fess up, its $100

I know its not right, and I am totally with ya, BUT he's a cop, your not.

He'll win, and you'll pay.

Odd chance you win, he's got your details he'll get you again.

A solicitor will only f**k you even harder.

I like to think of it like the Doc's, they send people off the the chiropractor, then the naturopathic etc etc, till they bleed you dry!

he was probably a freshly recruited rookie trying to prove himself to his superiors by picking up a so called "hoon". i bet he was telling his boss out the back that u took off flat chat outta the traffic lights and spun the wheels like crazy. f**k pigs.

i think, from the coppers perspective, he thought that your application of the throttle was too excessive and subsequently, too noisy. Same with people getting tickets for "excessive acceleration" and such. All would be similar things, and down to the individual coppas discretion. THey could probably even pull up grandad in the camry if they wanted to! Still, a bit over the top in my opinion.
