New Laws Affecting Motorcyclists
Effective January 1, 2013: New penalties for motorcycle owners who have replacement exhaust systems or mufflers manufactured after January 1, 2013 installed in motorcycles built after that date that do not bear a legal EPA label.
Motorcycle riders are subject to a fix-it ticket if a peace officer stops them for loud mufflers. The law only applies if the original equipment muffler, or aftermarket replacement muffler has been manufactured after January 1, 2013 and does not have a federal EPA noise emission label. If the exhaust system in question was built before January 1, 2013, NO CITATION can be issued under CVD 27202.1
A rider can only be cited if first stopped for something else.
Citation shall be treated as mechanical violation, or fix-it tickets, which will be dismissed by the court for a nominal fee with proof of correction.
Fines are $50 to $100 for first conviction and $100 to $250 for second & subsequent citations.
Motorcycles with factory original exhaust and aftermarket exhaust manufactured before January 1, 2013 cannot be cited under CVC 27202. They can be cited under other excessive noise, or modified exhaust vehicle code sections.
AB 1708 allows the use of mobile electronics devices to establish proof of insurance when asked to provide it by a peace officer.
AB 1890 allows a toll road transponder to be carried on a motorcycle rider's person, rather be affixed to the motorcycle windshield which could be stolen.
