Occoquan District Supervisor Kenny Boddye is hosting a Virtual Town Hall to address noise pollution caused by modified mufflers, jake brakes and neighborhood speeding. These excessively loud vehicles can detract from quality of life and traffic safety. Existing state and county codes make enforcement of moving noise violations difficult. Panelists for the town hall reflect that it will require collaboration across multiple agencies and levels of government to address the underlying issues. Supervisor Boddye will be joined by:

  • Senator Scott Surovell, Virginia’s 36th District
  • Delegate Danica Roem, Virginia’s 13th District
  • Amy Ashworth, Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney
  • Virginia State Police, Safety Division
  • First Sergeant Ed Petke, Special Operations Bureau/Traffic Unit, Prince William County

The panel will discuss existing challenges to curtailing excessive road noise, along with measures that could improve the ability to regulate vehicle noise. The public is invited to submit questions in advance during event registration, and there will be a Q&A following the panel discussion.

The town hall will be held on Thursday, March 11 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Register here.
