Beginning July 1, drivers can receive a fine of up to $114 for blasting music in their cars. The new law allows officers to ticket those playing music audible from a minimum 25-foot distance.
According to the law, audio coming from a vehicle that can be heard from a distance of 25 feet or more can result in a traffic infraction.
It also states that sound louder than necessary near locations like a church, hospital, or school will be considered punishable as a non-moving violation.
There are exceptions — for example, vehicles used for business or political purposes will not be subjected to a fine.
The law also do not apply to law enforcement vehicles equipped with any communication device necessary to perform law enforcement duties or assist in any emergency.
