§ 31-3.2-8. Mufflers.

Except as provided in this section, every snowmobile or recreational vehicle shall be equipped at all times with a muffler in good working order which blends the exhaust noise into the overall snowmobile or recreational vehicle noise and is in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise. The exhaust system shall not emit or produce a sharp popping or crackling sound. This section does not apply to organized races or similar competitive events held on:

(1) Private lands, with the permission of the owner, lessee or custodian of the land;

(2) Public lands and water under the jurisdiction of the director, with the director's permission; or

(3) Other public lands, with the consent of the public agency owning the land. No person shall have for sale, sell, or offer for sale on any new snowmobile or recreational vehicle any muffler that fails to comply with the specifications required by the rules and regulations of the director after the effective date of the rules and regulations.
