MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WDVM) — Residents in Montgomery County have been complaining about the amount of loud noise coming from drivers with modified mufflers, so Maryland State Police is working with Montgomery County Police to crackdown on these traffic violations.
Maryland State Police’s goal is to improve residents’ quality of life by quieting neighborhoods. To do this, officers will be working together to futher enforce vehicle modification laws.

Maryland State Police Corporal, Andre Butler said, “Gaithersburg City has a specific ordinance in place for excessive noise, excessive engine noise, muffler noise, tire noise, squealing tires, and that goes for motorcycles as well.”
