I got a ticket a few weeks ago for having a "illegal exhaust" and I was wondering if anyone on here has ever been able to fight it and win. The cop didn't say anything about noise, he just told me that he pulled me over for my aftermarket exhaust. I have a thermal cat back exhaust and a cat. This is the law: Virginia Code 46.2-1047 - Muffler cutout, etc., illegal - Virginia Virginia Code 46.2-1047 - Muffler cutout, etc., illegal - Virginia Code :: Justia . I'm going Thursday to an exhaust shop and getting them to look at it and hopefully say that its not straight piped or have an altered muffler without the baffle plates but I don't know yet. So has anyone on here ever fought the ticket and won without having to change their exhaust. Or if anyone has advice please let me know. Thanks Also I live near Harrisonburg if that helps any. I know it varies from town to town about the law.
