The operation was initiated early November in Klungkung after continuous reports were filed by residents about loud noise produced by motorcycles with customized exhaust units.

Deputy Chief of Klungkung Police Department, Kompol Sindar Sinaga, said that since the start of the pandemic, officers have primarily focused on COVID-19 handling.

More recently, the concern from residents of disruptive noise could not be neglected.

“We have been receiving tons of complaints from people alerting us of disorderly commotion on the streets,” Sinaga said.

Excessive noise generated by exhaust units is a violation of traffic rules. Since the start of operation, officers seized 68 motorcycles that did not comply with traffic regulations.

“We caught many adolescents; students and teenagers, not only from Klungkung, but also from Gianyar and Karangasem,” Sinaga added.

In order to retrieve the motorcycle from police possession, the owner must first attend a trial at the courthouse.

Sinaga warned drivers to replace the exhaust immediately upon retrieval, as a second offence would not be tolerated.

The deputy cheif also reminds parents to supervise their children in refraining from any sort of illegal activity.
