The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is committed to improving road user behaviour and reducing the illegal and anti social use of vehicles on London's roads. Where the use of illegal exhausts is identified, offenders will be dealt with by fixed penalty notice or given appropriate advice. The MPS periodically works in partnership with the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to ensure vehicles are compliant with road traffic law.
