According to the law, audio coming from a vehicle that can be heard from a distance of 25 feet or more can result in a traffic infraction.

It also states that sound louder than necessary near locations like a church, hospital, or school will be considered punishable as a non-moving violation.

There are exceptions — for example, vehicles used for business or political purposes will not be subjected to a fine.

The law also do not apply to law enforcement vehicles equipped with any communication device necessary to perform law enforcement duties or assist in any emergency.
