Do you love to blast your music at high volume on downtown drives? Are you driving a car without a muffler, have you modified your car to make it louder, or do you love to rev your motorbike in the downtown streets? Well, it might be time to rethink that approach, as Toronto Police will target noisy drivers across the city. The Awareness and Enforcement for Unnecessary Noise campaign is a response to numerous complaints from residents in Yorkville and other areas.

According to CityNews, tickets for noise offences will range from $110 to $155, so the cost of blasting tunes excessively with the windows down is fairly steep. The crackdown comes ahead of a new bylaw which will begin on October 1.

A release from Toronto Police stated: "Loud and excessive noise can be characterized as noise that is a nuisance to the general public, taking into consideration the nature, location, time and proximity of the source to residents and members of the public.

"Examples may include a loud auto stereo or car, truck or motorcycle exhaust emitting sound to the extent it disturbs patrons at a restaurant, nearby residents or other motorists on the roadway."

The hardened stance has comes as a result of Mayor John Tory requesting a review of Toronto's noise bylaw last September. Tory was present at the launch of the campaign on Monday night and described the issue of excessive traffic noise as something that has no place in Toronto.

"I think people who live in the city understand that it's not going to be Algonquin Park and it's not going to be silent at all times," Mayor Tory said, as reported by Global News.

"But the thing they have no understanding and no patience for, and I tend to agree with them, is noise that is caused by vehicles - especially people who are deliberately revving their engines and otherwise modifying their equipment to create an excessive level of noise that is disrupting the lives of people who are living in the city."

He added: "This is not just a downtown problem… It is inconsiderate and it is something that has no place in the city."

Tory also had some choice words for the demographic of Torontonians he believes are largely responsible for excessive and intentional traffic noise.
