I been a member here for a couple of months ever since I got my accord. Today I got my first ticket. :(
Will I get a point on my record? Do I have to go to traffic school to avoid the point? Also, do you guys suggest I remove my exhaust and go back to stock before appearing in court? Sorry for all the questions, I'm a newb to tickets. Please help me...!!

I don't think it is a fix it ticket because under "correctable" on the yellow slips, it is not checked. It says that I have to appear before or on 9/28/05.

Well, I bought the car w/ the exhaust, so I don't have the stock ones. I really don't want to waste my money on stock exhaust if I don't have to. But, if replacing the exhaust w/ the stock would fix everything and cost 10 bucks for processing I probably go to the junk yard and buy one.

.... you didn't know that you can get a ticket for loud exhaust? Did you know that some stock G35 owners got tickets for their exhausts? Even though the owners told the popo that it was stock, they just gave them the ticket. That is a reason why my friend rolls by slow and as quiet as he can when he sees cops around.

Wait till your ticket comes in the mail. This should be just a fix it ticket, this also should not count as any points on your licence. I got one of these also when I was testing a muffler setup for a company. The worse thing that can happen is that you have to go to a state ref center to have them test your exhaust noise with a meter. What exhaust is on the car? So we can determin if your under the legal limit for noise.

That's messed up, that stock G35 owners got tickets for their exhaust. My exhaust can't be much louder than the G35. In fact, I think the cop that pulled me over was a **** because I was at the light, about to make a U-turn. The cop just drove past me and guess he made a U-turn down the street. I'm positive the cop did not hear my exhaust, I think he just looked at my exhaust and assumed that it is loud and illegal.

I don't think it is a fix it ticket, because it should say "fix it" on the ticket?? Well I don't know what exhaust it is, my friend says it looks like a greddy replica. I also put a universal silencer in it.

You only get points for traffic violations, not for illegal modification. Btw, you should be able to take it to a police station and get it sound tested to find out if the cop was right or not. If the ticket is BS, take it to court.

word get it sound tested. If what you say indeed did happen, then I dunno. Did you give it much throttle when you did th u-turn? I fhe passed you then you turned around and he heard the exhaust down the street, then maybe it is too loud?

well i know in cali the exhaust should not exceed 93 dB. the cop should not know how loud it is based on his assumption. he needed to have pulled you over and asked you to rev your engine to 3000 RPM and then put a sound sensor there in order to convict you of illegal mods on your car - in this case too loud of an exhaust. if you get it tested at the Police center and its not 93 dB +, then you shud take your fix it to court so you wont have to go thru all that hassle of removing your exhaust.

I believe that in Cali it's 95 decibels. I got one of these tickets. I took it to the state ref and paid them $40. They did a smog and a sound test. I passed with flying colors and I receive my documents that says that my exhaust and intake are legal. Only thing left is to go to court next month and show the judge my documents.
BTW cops can pull you over for just a modified exhaust...not just because it's loud. They don't even have to do a sound test either....that's what the state referee is for. Well that's what happened to me.
