so yesterday morning at about 11am i woke up to someone banging pretty dang hard on my door. now normally that time would be okay, however i had been up for about 35hrs straight from work and a car club event so i was dog sh** tired, obviously i know there was no way for the officer to know that. so i get some clothes on and go to the door where the officer is still pounding pretty hard. too hard imo but i understand. anyway open the door and the officer is a bit rude and snippy, asking me if i was the owner of the black dodge charger out front. i said yes, why whats going on? now i am always very polite and respectful even if the officer isnt. and he says that there had been multiple complaints against me or rather the car for noise and excessive speed. NOW to be fair 2 days prior i was doing some email tuning with johan and recording logs, but not in town just outside on a county road that isnt used too much and even then i only went up to 65 for the pulls. IS my exhaust loud?, yes when i put it to the wood it is. no one really around to hear that. so i inquire when and where the complaints were made i feel i am at last entitled to that. the officer didnt apparently know any information other then that he was told to be on the look out for a black dodge charger for noise complaints. he warned me rather sternly that if there were any more complaints about it they would have to issue me a ticket, but at this time it was just a warning. he made a comment about whether or not my exhaust was legal and i said i have resonators and mufflers. if he wanted to check. and then he turned and left rather abruptly, i was kinda baffled, i live in a rather small town of about 3-4k people. bored nosey people at that and a bored police department to boot. i guess as far as i know they cant issue me a ticket unless they witness it themselves but he left me a bit pissed off. i also feel that people in general see and hear a car, and if it sounds really loud that must mean he is going really fast also. so i laughed a bit on the inside when he said excessive speed how can anyone really know if it was excessive speed or not. I live behind the local high school and if i called in every noisy ******* truck thats wrapping his exhaust before and after school they would probable find a way to block my cell phone number buti guess i am one just to shrug it off. anyway i guess this is just me venting about it. i went to work last night and was told by my girlfriend that they came by our place 3 times, which is unusual because they almost never go by.
