By Rubén Morales Iglesias: If you’re driving a vehicle that makes excessive noise, you might just get pulled over and fined.

The Ministry of Public Utilities, Energy and Logistics through the Department of Transport sent out an advisory to “owners and drivers of motor vehicles, particularly tractor trucks and motorcyclists, that operating such vehicles in a manner that causes excessive noise is prohibited”.

That’s in accordance with regulations 128, 135, and 136 of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations.

“No vehicle shall be used on any public road if it is not equipped with a silencer to reduce the noise from its exhaust, and no tractor truck shall use Jake brakes within any municipal boundary,” said the Ministry in a press release issued by the Government of Belize Press Office on Wednesday.

The Department of Transport will be following up with enforcement operations throughout the country to ensure compliance with these regulations said the release.

“Excessive or unreasonable noise is a public nuisance that affects community residents; therefore, it is encouraged that drivers of tractor trucks retrain from using Jake Brakes in residential areas and silent zone areas,” concluded the Ministry of Public Utilities, Energy and Logistics.
