As everyone knows the Supreme Court of South Carolina invalidated many of the anti-motorcyclists ordinances passed by the City of Myrtle Beach.  However a few of the ordinances remain, one of which is the exhaust ordinance.  Myrtle Beach has passed an exhaust ordinance which is far stricter than that enacted by the state legislature.  The result of this is that motorcyclists whose exhaust systems are legal everywhere else in the State of South Carolina can be ticketed in Myrtle Beach and in some instances have their property confiscated.

On Tuesday, The Law Offices of Tom McGrath filed suit in Horry County asking that the court find the ordinance to be unconstitutional and therefore invalid.  The plaintiff's in the law suit are numerous residents of the City of Myrtle Beach as well as ABATE of South Carolina, Inc. and ABATE of South Carolina, Inc., Horry County Chapter.  

As always thank you for supporting the rights of motorcyclists everywhere.  I will provide updates as the information becomes available.
