Re: What do you think of "Loud Pipes Save Lives"
Are you talking about motorcycles?
I think its a little bit of both. There are MANY people who tune their bikes just to be loud - the same way tuner cars and rumbly muscle cars do it too. Its all about attention.
Do I think it draws more attention to the bikes when they have loud pipes? Absolutely. But does that in fact lead to safer road conditions? That I have no clue. To be honest, I dont really think it saves lives at all. People who ride bikes safely and cautiously while sharing the roads with others respecting the road rules and etiquette are perfectly fine to be in traffic. It's those who zig-zag in and out of traffic, cut between cars, try to beat people changing lanes, etc... that cause dangers to themselves and others.
I just hope that those who put loud pipes on their bikes dont think that this gives them a reason to be an asshole and drive like a douche because their under the impression that everyone can hear them and knows where they are.
