Former Sheriff, State Senator Wants Motorcycle Laws Enforced

April 14th, 2008 by flanews

State Senator Steve Oelrich used biker day at the Capitol to talk about motorcycle laws that arent being enforced. Oelrich took reporters on a tour to spot bikes without mufflers. Its illegal in Florida to remove a motorcycles muffler. Removing the muffler makes the bike very loud. Only 10 citations were issued to bikers last year for breaking noise laws. Oelrich, a former sheriff, wants officers to start enforcing the laws.

My thing is why even have laws on the books if were not going to enforce them and this is a perfect example, said Oelrich.

While only 10 citations were written to bikers who broke noise laws, about 750 people were ticketed for playing their car stereos too loud.
