Manama : The General Directorate of Traffic has seized 45 vehicles that are equipped with loud exhaust mufflers in the past two weeks.
This was confirmed in a statement issued by the directorate yesterday, mentioning that the procedure came within its “tasks to combat wrong traffic behaviours which disturb citizens and residents”.
The vehicles will be impounded for one month, according to a statement issued by the directorate on October 29.
The directorate also clarified that the violating drivers were referred to the Traffic Prosecution.
It’s worth mentioning that most sports cars come with modified exhaust mufflers. But, many motorists add uncertified modifications to their vehicles, resulting in making loud noises. These are the vehicles mentioned in the directorate’s statement.
