Bravo to Scot Lehigh for keeping alive the push to get Boston police to enforce the ordinance against loud motorcycles (“Will Boston get bikers to pipe down?” Op-ed, April 30). Last weekend, while waiting in line to enter a concert hall, we were subjected to the ear-splitting blasts of an illegally piped bike.
Motorcycles, like cars, have to be inspected annually with stickers displayed on the bike plate. Passing inspection requires legal pipes. Enforcement would send a strong message to those who violate the rules. The city needs to get serious about compliance. There is no excuse for allowing the brazen crude behavior of immature bikers.
