Hyderabad: The Hyderabad traffic police booked 1910 cases against motorists who had installed modified silencers to their motorcycles. The police confiscated around 1,000 silencers and destroyed them by crushing them under a road roller.

Additional CP (Traffic) in-charge, Subha Rayudu, said the traffic police are initiating special drives to curb the use of modified or altered silencers that are not only causing noise pollution problems but also endangering the lives of other road users.

“Modifications of silencers on motorcycles not only violate traffic regulations but also contribute significantly to environmental degradation. Amplified noise levels pose serious health hazards,” he said.

The official said that as per the amendment of Section 190 (2) of the Motor Vehicle Act, fitting pressure horns and modified silencers on bikes is punishable with a fine of up to Rs. 10,000 and imprisonment of six months.
