Wood Buffalo RCMP is reminding you that violating the vehicle exhaust regulations could result in a fine.
As part of the Vehicle Equipment Regulation, the following section applies:
- A motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine must have an exhaust muffler that cools and expels the exhaust gases from the engine without excessive noise and without producing flames or sparks.
- A person shall not drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine if the exhaust outlet of the muffler has been widened.
- A person shall not drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine if a device is attached to the exhaust system or the muffler that increases the noise made by the expulsion of gases from the engine or allows a flame to be ignited from the exhaust system.
Wood Buffalo RCMP Cpl. Lacey Blair says this has routinely been a problem in Fort McMurray.
Violation of the following section can lead to a fine of $162.
