Road & Track website reports, “New York Governor Kathy Hochul has just signed a new bill that will bump fines for exhaust noise violation in the state from $150 to $1000. The bill is called SLEEP, and, because all lawmakers inherently love a good acronym, that stands for “Stop Loud and Excessive Exhaust Pollution.””

“The bill also includes a provision for shops installing those parts, culminating in the state pulling a shop’s operating license if they are caught installing overly-loud mufflers three times.”
