Green Twp. cracks down on noisy cars

Posted: Updated:
GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Green Township trustees recently passed an ordinance allowing its police department to issue citations for drivers who do not replace missing mufflers.

"We're getting a lot of calls, a lot of complaints from people," said Trustees Chairman Dave Linnenberg. "We're not looking for the person who loses their muffler on a Wednesday and they're going to get it fixed on a Thursday, that's not what this is for. This is specifically for people who've lost their muffler and here we are two, three months later and they still haven't replaced it."

The new ordinance in Green Township does not include loud mufflers that have been 'souped up' or enhanced. Township trustees say they plan on discussing those issues in the near future.

"We're just trying to get people to realize they need to respect their neighbors and respect the other people in the township and that's a sound quality when it comes to mufflers," said Linnenberg.
