“Mufflers… or lack there of”

“Dear PoPville,

I live on a fairly busy corner. It’s not a massive thoroughfare but it’s got it’s fair share of traffic, and it has a very long light. I’m probably noticing more because I’m working from home these days, but there are consistently a handful of cars that drive by without mufflers or with muffler amplifiers. They are INCREDIBLY loud and often during the early morning. Today, literally a small child started crying when a GT drove by with a muffler delete because she was so startled and scared of the noise. Traffic is loud enough as is and I know the DMV area does not permit any exhaust system amplification but I’m wondering if there’s an agency I can report the license plates to? As far as I can tell you can only report unsafe drivers.”
