Thats well out or order.......

How did they determine that the exhaust noise was too high and causing distress to other road users ??

Did anyone complain or was it the opinion of the officer.....

Opinion of the officer... no no-one complained...

I would have asked him to prove the exhaust was too loud, prove you were causing distress to other drivers and if he couldn't provide either to the letter of the law I would have told him jog on the jobsworth.

I thought ASBO's were issued by a Court, not by a Police Officer.
Section 59 Notice under the Police Reform Act is what he is referring to I believe.

Sorry OP I can only think of 2 reasons you would have got one, 1 you were actually being anti social with the car, 2 you were being anti social with the car and gave the officers less than the best in the way of respect lol

2500 revs to 30, what gear were you in then?

I was offered one when I had an ex staff member in the car once, I politely declined, and I believe Dan ViperST managed to get one in Sarfend, which is an amazing feat.
