NYS Adopts New Rules For Snowmobile Exhaust
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has approved new standards for snowmobile exhaust noise; sleds can be ticketed for being too loud.

The new rules require snowmobiles to have a working muffler that keeps noise below 78 decibels at full throttle measured from 50 feet away.
 
It also provides a threshold for testing sound emissions from sleds; the test was developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
 
Supporters of the law of the law say it gives police the ability to crack down on loud, after-market exhaust systems and hopefully in the long run will help encourage more landowners to open their property for snowmobile trails.
 
The New York State Snowmobile Association says some landowners have recently closed trails across their property because of loud or illegally modified sleds.
