    NJ Laws About Cars

    Hi Im Knew in the area and i was just wondering what kind of laws that they really enforce here. in california they really cracked down on how loud your exhaust was. so i was wondering about stuff like that. and also how low your car was too.

    Really depends on what township your in. The biggest thing up where I am are the taillights. Have to have a red bulb in them regardless. Also no smoked out taillights. Also up by me turnsignals have to be either yellow or red, no white. I live up by wayne , nj (northern part of the state). I know oaklnad , also by me loves to nail people with their front windows being tinted. really your not supposed to have the front ones tinted at all but mine are 22% and nones given me any problems. Really it depends on how you drive I guess, if the cop wants to be a **** he can pretty mych nail you in thgis state on exhausts, tinting, lighting, and even though I haven't heard of any stories but probably lowering as well.

    I've seen people in south jersey get busted for things like tint, taillights, stuff like that.
    You can get away with a decent amount sound wise, i've run open headers on V-8's for days(waiting on exhaust at the time).
    Your biggest pain-in-the-a$$ is going to be the inspection station.
    They are the hardest part of modding a car in NJ.
    Welcome to the right coast! Have fun in New Brumfus.

    Just out of curiosity, do you drive at night often? I can`t wear the tinted shield on my helmet (don`t know the %, but its the darkest they come) when the suns almost down, because its so hard to see, I can`t imagine having it permanitly on there. I know down in florida I`ve seen cars that literally look like they just spray painted their windows all the way around, and don`t know how they drive at night.


    Sorry for getting off topic

    I live in Boonton, NJ. Local cops been cool with me, maybe because they know the shop that built my car and I don't drive like a maniac.

    My car has no tint, no cats, no rice-tezza tails, w/ front plate, & lowered. Been this way for a year, and no tickets wherever I go to through out NJ. (Knock on wood.) But if you think your exhaust is loud, do what I did, put a silencer on. Not only it quiets down the exhaust a lot, but if a cop is right behind you, and he sees you have an exhaust silencer, he knows you actually DO care about noise emission, and you shouldn't have a problem. At least this is what I learned from my local officers.
    Applied Force built WRX, definitely one of a kind.

    Get the October 2003 issue of Sport Compact Car.
    They explain everything in there, state by state.
