KIDAPAWAN CITY -- Hundreds of modified motorcycle mufflers were destroyed by the Kidapawan City government as it intensify campaign against noise polllution and illegal mufflers.

A road roller flattened the confiscated mufflers in a ceremony in front of the Kidapawan City hall Tuesday witnessed by Mayor Joseph Evangelista and other officials.

Rey Manar, head of Kidapawan City traffic unit, the assorted mufflers were seized during months of traffic law enforcement in the city.

Locally known as "Bora-bora" (open pipe mufflers) the mufflers were improvised to create noise while the motorbike is running the streets of the city.

The sound is very irritating to human ears.

Manar admitted there are still motorcycles with "bora-bora" roaming around the city but in due time they will be confiscated.

"At least with this confiscation, the noise pollution has been reduced," he said.
