Who can do something about drivers making a lot of noise revving their cars?

A person must not start a vehicle, or drive a vehicle, in a way that makes unnecessary noise. This includes unnecessarily revving a vehicle when it is stationary or repeatedly opening and closing the throttle when the vehicle is in motion.

Report noise from engines revving
