The Oakville Noise By-law2011-100 and addendum 2008-098 was passed on December 19th 2011 and will take effect on July 1st 2012. Under the by-law, a motorcycle cannot be operated in Oakville if it emits any sound exceeding 92 dBA (decibels) from the exhaust outlet as measured at 50 centimetres by means of a sound level meter while the motorcycle is idling. The by-law also says a one, two, five or six-cylinder motorcycle cannot be driven in Oakville if its noise exceeds 96 dBA (at 2,000 RPM). A three or four-cylinder motorcycle cannot be driven if its noise exceeds 100 dBA (at 5,000 RPM). Minimum fine of $400 to a maximum fine of $25,000 for the first offence. The maximum fine for any subsequent offence is $50,000. We, Oakville motorcycles owners, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now and ban the noise by-law for the following reasons:  By-law is discriminatory as only motorcycles are being singled-out, targeted.  The process can have bikers detained up to 2 hours during the testing.  Businesses in towns where by-law exists will be impacted financially as fewer motorcyclists will venture there.  Many bikers will reconsider their involvement in charity/fundraising organized rides.  Costly as many tickets are dismissed in courts for faulty and/or improper testing procedures.
