Legislation has been introduced in the Virginia Senate to exclude antique motor vehicles, defined as motor vehicles 25 years old or older, from the requirement that such vehicles be equipped with an exhaust system in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual levels of noise. Current law excludes antique motor vehicles manufactured prior to 1950 from such requirements, and only allows an exhaust system originally installed by the manufacturer or an equivalent. The bill has been assigned to the Senate Transportation Committee.
