Default NH exhaust laws

Hi all, new to site. after reading NH DOT page i feel even more confused. Does it really say the exhaust can't be louder than 95db???? What about the dual i saw in LMC with the dual resonator tips? It says 50 state legal but isn't a resonator like a glasspack?? I'm obviously new to trucks, so sorry for sounding stupid. thanks, ken

This probably isn't a very helpful post, but...


Are you in a city or out in the sticks? Because I live a stone's throw from the NH border in a rural area and the NH cops have never harassed me or anyone for loud exhaust that I have seen. Maybe that's a down south thing?

I have run straight shorty drag pipes (very very loud) on a bike in NH with zero problems, for instance. But maybe I just got lucky? Honestly don't know.

I'm kind of shocked to hear about such a restriction on our beloved Live Free Or Die neighbors...you guys normally have the 'cool' laws.

95dbs is quite loud. i know ct have strict noise laws. my bike is pretty loud but i learned that as long as your not being an a-hole with driving or riding most of them dont care. but also there are sometowns where they just write you ticket for farting to loud aka wallingford ct, one town over from where i live.

That's what is on the books but in practice, no one enforces it unless you give them a reason to. I have a 450hp Mustang with true duals that you can hear a mile away, never had any issue. Up until last month, my daily driver was a 6.2L Suburban turbo diesel with NO muffler at all, just a pipe off the turbo. No issues. I live in the seacoast area and not in the sticks, btw.

The resonators knock down the sound
the exhaust would be much louder without them
& it would sound like your Ram was farting when MDS kicks in

I havent seen anything about it, ive been looking at the laws two, Me and my old man have loud bikes (his being strait drags no baffles) and no one seems to care, most cops dont carry the equipment for it and like other people say so, they dont really enforce it. two areas to watch out for in NH is Milford Oval, and Hampton Beach as they do enforce in those two areas so ive been told.

Truth. Hampton Beach in the summer, they'll pull you over for looking at them cross-eyed.
