Salt Lake City Police to crack down on loud cars in city limits
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City has had a problem with extremely loud cars inside city limits for some time now.
But the Salt Lake City Police Department (SLCPD) says they’re ready to crack down on the problem.
Police say they will mostly focus on altered exhaust systems.
For residents, the crackdown on loud cars is welcomed news.
“I have never lived anywhere with this much noise pollution,” said Salt Lake City resident Ryan Beck. “And we have lived in a lot of big cities.”
And for another resident, the loud car problem seems to have no end.
“Every night,” said Sydney Fonnesbeck. “Night after night after night for months at a time.”
SLCPD said its motor squads will be more aggressive in writing tickets and educating drivers about the noise.
