What to do with neighbours who install loud exhaust systems for their cars

What to do with neighbours who install loud exhaust systems for their cars

If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call?

Ghostbusters!

If there's something unbearable like the loud exhaust from an RX-8 (I think it’s an RX-8), who you gonna call?

LTA!

LTA takes your complaints seriously

In a post uploaded on SG Road Vigilante, a video and various images of 2 LTA officers checking out the undercarriage of an RX-8 has gone viral.

Here's the link to the long video (might take awhile to load because it’s 4mins+ long, I suggest skimming through the video).

The story behind this

Apparently, a "pek cek" (exasperated) neighbour could not take the sound of the car’s exhaust and made a complaint to LTA.

The neighbour even left a note for the owner of the car.

I can feel the passion from this comment.

Very interesting plot twist. I think the neighbour will have to lan lan suck thumb, wear earplugs.

-_- Err. LTA stands for Land Transport Authority.

If you want to complain

Have a neighbour with too much money and owns a car that disrupts the peace of the neighbourhood?

Call LTA @ 1800 2255 582

The officers will come down to investigate in no time.

Sometimes, its not about the exhaust. But the hao lian attitude. Come back must rev rev. Go stun must rev rev. KNN scared people dunno u drive a LJ sports car. My neighbour driving a BMW 525i is a classic example. Keep reving the LJ Supersprint Xos. Even the Lambo and Ferrari and the Evo X in my car park are better behave.

Ive also driven LJ Evo 9, X and Scooby, I did not do that for sure.

What so sporty with the exhaust making disturbing loud noise to others in the car parks? TP and LTA officers can spot these modified cars on the roads everyday. Such car should be sent for inspection twice yearly! Many are playing tricks with these illegal modified items removed before send for inspection, once done re-stall back all these illegal devices.

If the exhaust were actually legal, I think he should give a few more revs every evening to show his love and appreciation for the bao toh kia neighbour without the balls to put his details down to discuss it civilly first

My block beside main road... So one side is car park got loud exhaust, the other side main road also got loud exhaust.... And it's not just ramming the engine but the jokers actually sprint on the car park!

I think nothing beats the high pitch motorcycle exos going through the neighbourhood at night.

Thankfully this case is not the norm and most of the people who drives loud cars know basic courtesy to the neighbours, else can you imaging the rock concert going on in the car park of high end condos or landed properties? 🤣

Wah, this one must be arrested and have his car impounded. Maybe the other residents should submit their car recording to TP!

Next time I suggest that you take a golf ball, stuff it in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully, the exhaust manifold explode.

Totally agree.

Even waiting at traffic junctions also must rev, don't they know it only irritates people and all they get in karma is curses and not envy?

Why do u use 'ramming'and not reving? Ram is like literally copulating with the engine.

Really irritating when I have just painstakingly put the infants to bed and the car starts to roar in the car park.

Sg is long overdue a noise camera. Have been planning to write to ST forum on this. Sinkees are already the most sleep deprived on this planet. Just as they falling asleep, the roar of a modified motorbike or car jolt them awake. It affects our sanity.

These chaps must pay by having their rides impounded for a month + fine.

    Is this another case of street racing during CB?

    Could this be another case of street racing spotted on our roads during the Circuit Breaker period? Spotted on Reckless Driver SG's facebook page, a video has been posted showing the camera car driving slowly on the middle land before a small group of cars went past it at a higher speed. Yes. this is milder than the incident on the KPE that had the drivers in the video arrested, with only three cars shown in the short 40-plus-second clip. In fact, we reckon the 'tiong chias' were doing approximately 120-140km/h while the camera car was doing 70-80km/h. The cars, likely a Ford Focus, a Honda FD Civic and a Honda Integra were caught on camera at around 11:20pm on the 25th of May heading towards AYE Jurong inside the CTE tunnel. 1.mp4 On another note, we were surprised to find most of the comments attacking the video owner, saying that the camera car was road-hogging. Do you agree? Let us know!

    Tribecar Toyota Wish speeds on wet road and crashes, pay come, pay gone

    Happy Labour Day, Singapore! Some of us are thinking of how to utilise our pay that just came in. Then, there are jokers like this Toyota Wish driver who blows it all in an instant (and more). Speeding on PIE A dashcam video of the said driver has gone viral and here are some takeaways after watching the video. No one drives a Wish to speed. It's a family MPV for goodness sake. Don't do stupid things with other people's car, much less a rental Here's the 47-second video taken from SG Road Vigilante   The Wish loses control at the 0.09 mark of the video. Online chatter Wow. To the Toyota Wish driver, good luck paying for all the damages for a rental car.    

    Park properly otherwise it might bite you back!

    This is why we should always park properly. We were alerted to someone's posts on his facebook page, showing a BMW X6 XDrive35i badly parked at Jurong Point Shopping Center. Like what the photos show, the netizen who is presumed to be driving the Toyota Altis that is parked beside, barely had space to squeeze into his lot. The large BMW SUV had kind of edged into the page owner's lot causing him to be quite pissed.  By parking badly, and of course no thanks to the Altis driver, the BMW owner will be having lots of difficulty getting into his car.  So What do you guys think of this? Is it fair to 'punish' the BMW driver who ill-parked? Or do you think the BMW driver had made an honest mistake as it simply wanted to be further away from the lorry beside it?

    BMW E34 and dashcam driver narrowly escape death with lightning-quick reflexes

    A video of two drivers speeding and almost crashing to their deaths seems to be circulating on social media, Whatsapp groups and Telegram chats. Here's the link to the 14-second video.   They almost died In the video, you can see both the BMW and dashcam driver take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision with a stationary vehicle on lane 1 (rightmost lane). If they had crashed, based on how fast they were going past other cars on the road, they would have died.  Online Chatter - Pro or lucky? I'm not even sure whether to be horrified or impressed by the display of lightning quick reflexes in the video. Netizens seem to be leaning more towards impressed. Indeed. They are waiting.
