Long Beach Will Not Tolerate Illegal Mufflers
What: Electronic Sign Board & Decibel Reader Demonstration
When: Thursday, May 23, 2013 9:00 am ~ 9:30 am
Where: 310 West Ocean Blvd.
Across from City Hall, in front of Camden Harbor View Apartments

My office worked with Public Works staff to develop the prototype in response to complaints by Ocean Blvd. corridor residents about the noise caused by illegally modified mufflers on motorcycles in the canyon-like corridor of high rises on Ocean. The signboard and enforcement comes just in time for Memorial Day weekend and start to the summer season, when riders with illegal mufflers are most prevalent.

The sound decibel reader is for public awareness only and will not be used for enforcement purposes. The message we wish to convey is that "we welcome those riders with legal mufflers and hope they enjoy the many attractions and restaurants our city has to offer.... but illegal mufflers will not be tolerated." We hope to discourage those riders from coming to Long Beach.
