Funny you mention this, last week broke my car window and some people stole my university furniture and laptop... over 2000$ of stuff was stolen, and Mister officer told me: I know this is sad... at this spot, in Montreal, it happens 2-3 times per week.... people here steal because it's a good spot !

Even a LED strip added is considered illegal for "modification" reasons

Like I said, some officers are hired only for this purpose. But not all of them arrest you for these reasons. You have to be lucky one doesn't get on your case....

Be a FREE MAN not some slave for the state to suck off of.

Different problem here in Canada... my friend did fight back their ticket, and most of people who had some also... You go to your town's court, and most of the time tickets are incomplete (no decibel meter proof) and the officer doesn't show up in court, which gives you an automatic "win" on your cause... but the same week, you'll get another one from the same bastard.
The only way to get rid of this problem is to go to the vehicle inspection society to get a certificate that proves you car is Okay (which you usually don't get because you'll have other mods like tint, or smoked tailight, or HID's...) and they'll give you a certificate that you keep in your car if you ever get caught again... (that's what my mustang friend did). Even though, Mister officer arrested him again, this time with twice the amount of fees (because it was the second time you got caught for the same reason). My friend showed him the certificate. Police officer gently responded: nothing's telling me you didn't change anything between your approval certificate date and now, it's not my problem, fight it in court. Plus, he responded, third time I get you for the same reason, it's twice the amount$, plus you car gets towed right away and you'll need an inspection before goin back on the road.

= TOTAL WASTE OF TIME

Some police may not notice, but you take the chance any time you modify your car.

ontario traffic law:

Every motor vehicle or motor assisted bicycle shall be equipped with a muffler in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise and excessive smoke, and no person shall use a muffler cut-out, straight exhaust, gutted muffler, hollywood muffler, by-pass or similar device upon a motor vehicle or motor assisted bicycle. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 75 (1).

no exhaust system shall be shortened or modified from original equipment so as to fail to direct the exhaust beyond the underbody of the occupant compartment or luggage compartment, and in no case shall the distance between the outlet and periphery of the underbody, past which it directs the exhaust, exceed 15 centimetres.
Two of my friends are getting killed by police officers here in Montreal.
Now we have a new law that says "police officer needs a proof with a decibel meter to say that an exhaust is not conform"
But officers are just giving away tickets to every car that looks to have modified tips, or exhaust, even when the car is turned off. They even wait behind your car, hidden, untill you start it up and boom! ticket!

So like I said, my two friends are getting killed by officers, one has a Caliber SRT-4 with a custom dual exhaust magnaflow... deep tone, clean, not ricer, but had over 500$ in tickets so far.
My other friend has a Mustang 5.0l 2013, with roush ST3 axle back... same story... Officer only told him not legal because I can see inside your pipes (ridiculous..). Roush st3 can be bought from dealer here.. still not legal...

And I... I haven't had an issue yet. crossing my fingers, but i've been followed more then 5 times by cops who seemed to be not sure about arresting me or not... I got lucky...
I took the chance of getting my magnaflow dual out, I didn't remove my first muffler to try to keep as quiet as possible...
But man it sucks here !
In some city here, like Mascouche and terrebonne, police officers are hired only to get modified cars. (smoked tail light, stance, hellaflush, lowered springs, exhaust, window tint, etc.). And they are fck hungry for our money.
