Results of Project Noisemaker

Posted On Tuesday August 04, 2020

Region of Peel – Road Safety Services concluded Project Noisemaker on July 31, 2020. The project was designed to identify and reduce the number of motor vehicles with modified and excessively loud exhaust systems on Peel roads.

The Peel Regional Police conducted targeted enforcement for the entire month of July. We encouraged vehicle owners to repair modified exhaust systems and avoid using devices such as factory-issued mechanisms to alter and increase the sound of their vehicles, especially in quiet, residential areas.

Throughout July, officers issued 403 Highway Traffic Act tickets within the Region of Peel. Out of the 403 tickets, 154 were issued for Improper Muffler on a Motor Vehicle, and 150 were issued for Unnecessary Noise.

“We appreciate the community’s support during this initiative, and we will continue to move forward with this campaign throughout the month of August.  We want to remind vehicle owners that if you’re making modifications to your vehicle, you could be committing an offence and subject to a fine under the Highway Traffic Act.” Inspector Pete Danos

Our commitment to road safety is a core policing function. Our officers remain vigilant twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week.
