City Traffic Police to ‘silence’ errant motorists

The City Traffic Police will take stern action against motorists and motor cyclists who fix specially manufactured silencers that release unusual noises while driving. According to a spokesman for the Motor Traffic Department, no motorists or motor cyclists could use silencers that release unbearable noises as it violates the Noise Pollution Act. City Traffic Police, SSP Chula de Silva told the Sunday Observer that vehicles with such silencers are not permitted to ply on roads or highways on the ground that they cause severe inconvenience to motorists and pedestrians.

He said these silencers are generally used by young motorists, especially motor cyclists to seek undue attention.

“A large number of persons who used such silencers in their vehicles was taken into custody in Colombo and the suburbs recently. More Police personnel have been deployed at main junctions during peak hours to crack down on those who violate this rule.”

SSP Chula de Silva warned motorists and motor cyclists to refrain from fixing such silencers to their vehicles and added that the silencers now used should be removed forthwith.

He said that people are not permitted to install different horns as these are used only by hospital ambulances and vehicles used by higher ups.
