    Sec. 25-337. Exhaust system in good working order required.
     
    (a) No person shall drive and no owner of a motor vehicle shall permit or allow the operation of any owned vehicle upon a highway unless such motor vehicle is equipped with an exhaust system of a type installed as standard factory equipment, or comparable to that designed for use upon the particular vehicle as standard factory equipment, in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise, annoying smoke and escape of excessive gas, steam or oil. An exhaust system shall not be deemed to prevent excessive or unusual noise if it permits or allows the escape of noise in excess of that permitted by the standard factory equipment exhaust system of private passenger motor vehicles or trucks of standard make.
     
    (b) The term "exhaust system," as used in this section, means all of the parts of a motor vehicle through which the exhaust passes after leaving the engine block.
     
    (c) Chambered pipes and turbo-supercharges shall not be deemed to be an effective muffling device to prevent excessive or unusual noise as required in subsection (a). (Code 1959, § 20-192)
