Traffic Police of Dili municipality continue to seizemotorcycles with modified short mufflers because they cause much noise pollution.

The Traffic Police Commander of Dili municipality Inspector Matias da Silva said this operation was based on the road code law no. 6/2003, article 74, which bans the use modified mufflers as it is against people’s right to live peacefully.
“For example, some people go to Cristo Rei for recreation but other people use modified mufflers to cause noise. This goes against people’s freedom to enjoy their free time,” he said.
For drivers who break the regulation, and when caught by the police, will pay a fine of $100 including an order to change the modified muffler before they can ride their motorcycle again.
Meanwhile, the National MP Anna Ribeiro said the use of modified mufflers does not benefit the people so she urged the police to increase their efforts and capture the culprits.
"Sometimes young people use the modified mufflers making noise in the neighbourhood, this anger older people and frightens children,” she said.
She also recommended a civic education campaign to socialise young people to change their behaviour and its impact on the community.
