    U.S. Senate Introduces Counterpart to House RPM Act
    The U.S. Senate introduced S. 2659, the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016” (RPM Act), legislation that makes it clear that it has always been legal to modify a street vehicle into a racecar used exclusively at the track.

    S. 2659 is the Senate companion bill to the House of Representatives' RPM Act, H.R. 4715, which was introduced earlier this week. The RPM Act must pass the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives before becoming law.
    Take action now! Tell Congress to support the RPM Act and save American motorsports!

        Aftermarket exhausts don't belong on our public roads. Everytime this comes up I see words such as "on your track machine" and "for closed course only!". However that doesn't seem to be the reality with excessively loud exhausts penetrating peoples homes 6-8 times an hour in developed areas. I don't have anything against wanting to equip a motorcycle or car with performance equipment, but can we keep those motorcycles and cars on the racetracks instead of the public highways? Let's all stop pretending like those who do this to their motorcycles or car only use them on closed courses. We hear excessively loud motorcycles all the time, and that is precisely why they are illegal under current state and federal laws in addition to the emissions issue which I admit has a minimal impact as compared to other issues. However excessive noise does have a significant impact on human and animal health. We have been studying the link between noise pollution and human health since the 1970s. Excessive noise is implicated in high blood pressure, heart disease, aggression, depression and anxiety, sleep deprivation, the list goes on. Maybe let's not keep bringing so much attention to ourselves so more people don't begin speaking out against it and we loose this privilege to modify our vehicles outright. I for one enjoy tweaking my vehicle, i'm just considerate about how my actions impact the lives of others.

          I Disagree ....... Strongly.................

          We are over regulated as it is

          AND..... FWIW I personally prefer quieter exhaust.... However I strongly support the right to modify your vehicle

            Non sequitur. Not all aftermarket exhausts are excessively loud, and you already admit that loud exhaust is already illegal on public roads. Enforce noise ordinances, and keep the government out of the rest of it.

              I would say that any exhaust that is installed on a street legal vehicle hardly qualifies as emitting "excessive" noise. And what actually qualifies as excessive to you? You know what else is harmful to someone's health? Worrying about silly stuff until it makes you crazy. I'm glad you're not my neighbor, running my grinders and air compressors and whatever else I'm doing would give you a heart attack. Something else that is potentially hazardous to your health...butting your nose into other people's business. So, orionsune, what's your hobby? What's your passion? I hope it's collecting stamps because I am extremely offended by people that hoard perfectly useable postage for themselves, especially when I run out of stamps and have to stop the show to go get a dadgum stamp to mail a dadgum letter. Speaking of letters, I think I'm going to send another post card to President Trump. I will not be including a description of your grievance.

                  If I lived in a developed area I'd be surprised by lots of noise from cars too....

                  Oh wait, I do live in a developed area. Dang it! I thought that was the Texas Mockingbird making all that racket!

                  That's it, no more birds!

                  ...or dogs!

                  ...or sensibility!

                      He's probably the home owners' association president where he lives too. The same guy that puts letters in peoples' mailboxes telling them that their grass is 1/2" over maximum height or the petunias are the wrong shade of lavender.
