Loud motorcycles with illegal mufflers frequently use the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway between Woodlawn and the Mount Vernon Estate, and the GW Parkway. These motorcycles are an illegal and highly intrusive source of noise pollution. Approximately 3 out of 4 motorcycles on these roads have illegal mufflers installed simply to make noise, usually 2 to 4 times more noise than the legal muffler.

What other traffic violation impacts so many people? Each time a loud motorcycle travels along the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway and the GW Parkway, hundreds of people inside and outside of our homes are forced to listen to the noise, often every 5 minutes or so on warm weekend days and weekday nights, from early morning to late at night.

Loud motorcycles are not appropriate for the Mount Vernon residential and historic area. Most of the motorcycles on these roads are louder than a semi truck or bus, and some like a jet engine. If all motorcycles used legal mufflers, they would rarely be heard. We are now working along with some affiliates of The Barber Law Firm while we explore further legal action to protect our neighborhoods. Read more...
