New NYC law against loud exhaust

Some or maybe even many of you guys may not agree with me on this on.
While the New York law is a little over kill, I remember while growing up, cars getting
pulled over for faulty exhaust. It seems no one enforces noise ordinances any more.

My Condo faces the road and is 300 feet from a light located on a sweeping curve.
Strange intersection.. but I digress.  I am also on the 3rd floor too.
I am ready to buy a paint ball gun for next summer and nail every GD noisy ass HD
rider that blast by my place at 2 in the morning. 
Yes, I understand the desire crank out the rpms but, I want to find these guys and put
a cherry boom exhaust and drive up and down their road in the middle of the night
and all afternoon so I can't even hear the TV in my house. Then I'm going to go date their

While were at it, pull these clowns over with headlights aimed at the eyeballs. I should
shoot those SUV headlights right out of the MF sockets.

How are you guys doing?

Did you New York city guys see this?

For the carriage return deficient:

Looks like NYC is trying to require an EPA tag, and an automatic fine  
if no tag is present.
I'm not an advocate of "loud pipes save lives", but I know some after  
market pipes might cross the 80 dB mark.
Either way, I don't like the strong-arm tactics of "do this or else"  
with no recourse.
