There are solutions afoot, but translating them from idea to practice isn’t as easy as anyone would like. The chairman of the Grand County Motorized Trails Committee, Clif Koontz, is pushing the “20-inch test” to keep UTV drivers with noisy, modified rigs in check. Basically, a tester would hold a decibel meter 20 inches from your exhaust at cruising rpm. If you’re at 96 decibels or under, you’re golden. Shoot over that mark and you’re parked.
