Bike Muffler Act

Enforce existing laws or create a Muffler Act to directly stem the extreme noise from modified bikes (yeng yengs).
These modifications involves the removal of the stock muffler and the addition of an illuminated false-muffler which amplifies the bike. It is easy to spot because the false-muffler never matches the bikes original colour.

1.These modifications violate at least two existing laws. Section 3b of the Noise Abatement Act : " no person
shall, on any private premises or in any public place at any
time of day or night--operate, or permit or cause to be operated, any
loudspeaker, microphone or any other device for
the amplification of sound,
in such a manner that the sound is audible beyond a distance
of 100 metres from the source of such sound".

  1. Road Traffic Act, section 43-2
    " nor shall any such person at any time by cutting out the muffler or otherwise
    cause such motor vehicle to make any unnecessary noise".

The Muffler Act in the Philippines directly addresses this noise pollution from bikes and cars.
We do not necessarily need a new law we can enforce the existing laws as these bikes emit noises that stretch well beyond 100 metres, as prescribed by law.
Just one of these bikes traveling at midnight will wake up the elderly , babies and the resting workforce.
