Starting Monday, July 31st a new ordinance in Boise will allow authorities to fine drivers with loud vehicles.

According to the Idaho Statesman, the "Excessive exhaust and muffler noise" ordinance was passed on Tuesday and goes into effect on Monday. It prohibits the removal of muffler systems or modifying them in any way to make a car louder. 

Businesses near the path of Downtown Boise's "Cruise loop" have long complained about the noise.
