Under a bill introduced in Michigan, a person who modifies an exhaust system to “produce noise in excess of OEM stock decibel levels” would be forced to pay a fine of $10,000 for each violation.

SEMA-opposed legislation to prohibit motor-vehicle repair facilities from modifying an exhaust system to “produce noise in excess of OEM stock decibel levels” has been introduced in Michigan. Under the bill, a person who violates this prohibition would be forced to pay a fine of $10,000 for each violation. Under Michigan law, a motor-vehicle repair facility means “a place of business which engages in the business of performing or employing persons who perform maintenance, diagnosis, vehicle body work or repair service on a motor vehicle for compensation.”
