Address noisy motorcycles

February 1, 2023

Some members of the public are tonight asking authorities to impose restrictions on noisy motorbikes.

The call comes as authorities move to address concerns about noise pollution from kites.

Some residents we spoke to insist the cycles are a problem because they scare the elderly and road users.

Meanwhile, the President of the Black Knights Motorcycle Group Fabian Reeves notes they are aware many people want them stopped but he says its a few who are doing nonsense.

Mr. Reeves adds these are issues which could be dealt with through community dialogue.

He told CBC News the sound of the muffler is also a safety protection for them as riders.
