The thump from the exhaust of a Royal Enfield motorcycle is a pride among its fans and enthusiasts; however, when these silencers were modified to sound louder, citizens nor the traffic cops were not so proud or impressed.
Traffic police in Pune, Mysore, Bangalore and some parts of Kerala have started to crack down on illegally modified silencers. Any Royal Enfield fitted with a modified exhaust and not with the manufacturer's specification were removed and the owner subsequently fined under Section 190 (2) of MVA.
In a recent crackdown on loud Royal Enfield silencers by Bangalore Traffic Police, they took to social media platform Facebook, and they had to say this: "Special squad of @AcpSe traffic police has seized 11 bikes & fined them after removing their modified defective silencers."
Recently, the Bangalore Traffic Police again took to Facebook to reveal what happens to the confiscated Royal Enfield silencers. They are crushed under a road roller and this what they said, "If you wondered what we do with all the Defective Silencers, Shrill Horns and Number Plates, this pic should answer your question."
Loud silencers are indeed a nuisance for people as well as animals although many Royal Enfield owners think that exhausts with a loud sound are a status symbol.
Why Noice Pollution Is Bad
Noice pollution can harm the activity of humans and animals. High decibel can lead to cardiovascular and behavioural effects in humans. It can cause hypertension, high-stress levels, noise-induced hearing loss, sleep disturbances, among others.
Along with harmful effects on humans and animals, it also affects the motorcycle and the environment as well. Manufacturers understand the requirements of emission control, as well as sound pollution and they, develop exhausts without compromising on the performance.
