        After it was confirmed that big bikes, show cars, and race cars are exempted from the proposed Anti-Muffler ordinance in Manila, we were expecting feedback from the other sectors that are going to be affected by the new rule.

        Earlier this week, principal author and councilor Joel Villanueva made a few clarifications on Ordinance No. 8145 during a recent radio interview: “Sa ilalim po ng ating ipino-propose na ordinansa, ang mga exempted po ay yun pong mga inilalaban sa car show, sa sports competitions, at yung mga [motor na] 400cc pataas.

        True enough, netizens flocked the comments section of the article to say their piece, and there was a lot of pieces said:

        Bakit may exempted? Decibels can be measured for any motor vehicle including cars.” — Evan N. Payawal


        Good! Although sana wala na lang ordinance na ganito. Siguro, sa tingin ko, ang pagbasehan is not (whether) big bike or not, dapat iyong number of cylinder. Pagbawalan na lang iyong single-cylinder bikes magkalkal o gumamit ng aftermarket muffler na lagpas 99dB as per the new LTO directive. Kahit pa 400cc+ sa papel na big bike dapat pagbawalan since sila naman talaga iyong mga motor na tahimik pag nilabas ng casa and most of them, ang foul ng sound pag may aftermarket muffler.

        “Twin-cylinder (lalo Benelli!), 3-cylinder, 4-cylinder—magaganda na tunog ng mga yan. May mga hindi 400cc na motor pero pag naka-aftermarket muffler, ang ganda ng tunog like Kawasaki ZX25R and Yamaha R3. Oh well, this is another law that could result in more crocs on the road kaya kung ako lang, wala na sanang ganito. — Sam Itis

        Big bikes should not be exempted. Dapat i-regulate din. I saw some big bikes with annoying sounds, like those with 1- or 2-cylinder with open muffler.” — Cayabyab Joseph

        Bagay naman talaga sa big bikes ang malakas ang tunog eh. Yung mga kamote pinipilit maging tunog-big bike ang 125, 150, 155 at 160cc na motor, nagiging tunog-lata ng sardinas tuloy. Ang ingay at masakit sa tenga.” — Cañeza Verzosa Junior

        Pang-mayaman lang daw to? Kasi scooter gustong gawin tunog-lata. Buti sana kung 400cc yung takbo ng scooter, eh hindi naman. Kung gusto mo ng maingay na motor mag-big bike ka o yung lagpas 400cc na motor.” — Mi Lo

        Discrimination! Dapat lahat ng motor pwedeng naka-loud muffler! Hindi ito tama! Papaano naman ang mga naka-small displacement na motor? Hindi tama ang ganito, nagbabayad naman kami nang tama sa monthly payments ng motor namin. Bumibili ng mamahalin na muffler, paano na lang kami?—sigaw ng kamote riders. — Ram Torres

        Had an inline-four before, open pipe, mas malakas ang ingay. Kaya stay stock, annoying lahat kahit big bike pag ganyan. Imagine niyo lahat ng kotse pwede rin mag-open pipe? Grabeng ingay nun. Ang ibig yata sabihin ng article kung babasahin, kung yung purpose is for racing or show, pwede. Walang sinabi sa daan, ang sinabi nga kung may LTO, sila ang nakakaalam sa gagawin kasi may decibel meter sila. Kaya sa batas pag lampas 125dB, alam na. — Giovanni Cadungog Cando
