Ontario Police Stop Illegal Vehicle After Being Tipped Off By Its Naughty Bumper Sticker

Getting pulled over is always embarrassing, but things can get even more awkward when you've got an NSFW bumper sticker signalling every cop of your illegal vehicle.

An Ontario police officer stopped a vehicle this winter after discovering their car had removed its muffler to make "unnecessary noise."

Constable Marc Taraso revealed in a tweet on Tuesday that he was alerted to an "illegally modified" vehicle after noticing its bumper sticker.

An image of the sticker, which reads "louder than your girlfriend last night," was included in the tweet.

The Halton police officer's post caused quite a stir on Twitter, with people complaining that the driver shouldn't have been pulled over for having a cheeky sticker.

However, Taraso assured residents that the bumper merely gave him a clue and that he quickly discovered the car had no muffler.

The constable took things a step further by sharing a photo of the vehicle's modifications.

So, despite skeptics, it would appear his intuition was dead-on, although it is unclear if the driver was charged.

Taraso also included the hashtag "Project Noisemaker" in the post.

The regionwide project was initially launched back in 2020, and it aims to crack down on loud motor vehicles with illegal modifications, unsafe vehicles, and aggressive driving.

"It has been observed through proactive enforcement that this unnecessary noise is often found to be accompanied by other illegal vehicle modifications, unsafe vehicle conditions and aggressive driving behaviours," a statement on the Halton Police website states.
