New Proposed Noise Ordinance May Affect Motorcyclists

On Monday, a city panel in Racine moved to recommend a new city noise ordinance to police. The proposed ordinance outlaws disorderly conduct with a motor vehicle, including revving engines, squealing wheels, popping wheelies on a motorcycle, unnecessary horn blowing, or sudden acceleration. Those who violate the law would face a $100 fine, with a harsher fine for repeat offenses.

Supporters of the proposed ordinance state that the it is based on a zero-tolerance policy already in place in Wisconsin Dells and will help police officers better deal with these issues. However, opponents feel that the existing ordinance is sufficient to combat noise problems and that the new ruling is simply a step too far. Some motorcycle enthusiasts worry that the ruling might even discourage motorcycle groups from holding events in the city.
