Oneida county sheriffs office encourages people to keep their exhaust systems in check
RHINELANDER - Vehicles with loud exhaust can be very annoying. The exhaust can also be expensive if you get a citation that's around 200 dollars.

Wisconsin requires people to maintain their exhaust system and to have a muffler in working condition. Oneida County Sheriff Patrol Sergeant Brad Fogerty says the biggest problem is during the winter.

"Exhausts can fail at any time during the year," said Oneida County Patrol Sergeant Brad Fogerty. "In northern Wisconsin with the winters we have and the amount of salts that is used on the road, that commonly will disintegrate a lot of our exhaust systems. Exhaust can get loud for a variety of reasons. Poor maintenance, exhaust can just wear out over time, or it can just become defective or altered with after-market products."


Patrol Sergeant Fogerty encourages people to have their vehicles looked at if the exhaust is louder than normal.
