Warning was given on motorcycles with loud exhaust pipes by the Malay Auxiliary Police (MAP) Boracay.
According to MAP Police Deputy Chief, Rodito Absalon Sr., they would remove the loud exhaust pipes of motorcycles that they would catch since such exhaust pipes are prohibited in the Island of Boracay.
Based on the Malay Municipal Ordinance No. 144 Series of 2001, the island is a noise sensitive zone hence the practice of motorists of modifying or changing the exhaust pipes of their motorcycles is prohibited.
According to Absalon, they would make sure that the motorcycles of violators of the ordinance would be brought to the mainland and have the original exhaust pipes of their motorcycles installed.
It was learned that there were still motorcycles roaming Boracay Island that had loud exhaust pipes despite the continuous warning and catching of violators by the MAP.
