This bill sets noise limits on heavy (greater than 6000 pounds) and light motor vehicles, and motorcycles. It prohibits modification of exhaust or intake mufflers or any other vehicular noise abatement device. It prohibits freeway construction in such a way that would produce a noise level greater than 50 db(A) in any public school classroom or library. It restricts the noise emission from new vehicles at a steadily decreasing limiting value through the year 1980. Other sections deal with noise emissions of arbitrary commercial products, powered equipment, hand tools, construction and industrial machinery, and manufacturing operations in zoned districts.
