Loud pipes invite legislation

EVEN ALONG the “Live Free Or Die’’ highways and back roads of New Hampshire, loud motorcycle pipes have worn out their welcome. Efforts in the Granite State to dial back the noise level deserve the full support of the governor and state Senate.

Last month, the state House of Representatives did its part by passing a bill that lowers the allowed decibel levels of motorcycles. It could have gone further by requiring motorcycles to adopt EPA-approved mufflers, and display a stamp to that effect. But the bill is at least a step in the right direction.
