Loud Car Exhaust Systems/Backfiring in Your Neighborhood - Since the General Assembly passed HB 5029 last session, I have heard numerous complaints from residents across the County who have noticed a significant uptick in street racing and loud car exhaust systems/backfiring at all hours of the day and night. HB 5029 amended Section 46.2-1049 of the Virginia State Code to prohibit law enforcement officers from stopping a motor vehicle solely on the basis of having an exhaust system that was not in good working order or having excessive or unusual levels of noise. This is one of the many unintended consequences of HB 5029. The impact of this and the other changes on public safety and quality of life in Fairfax County are still being determined. On Tuesday, June 8th at 4:30pm the Board will hold a public hearing to change the County Code to match these and other changes to the State Code that impact public safety. More information below on the changes and how you can share feedback on how the bill is affecting your neighborhood.
