I am writing with reference to your article "Crackdown on tinted windows and noisy engines" (Irish Independent, March 11), in which Paul Melia has decided to label anyone who runs a car with a loud exhaust as a "boy racer".

I don't blame Mr Melia, as this is a common misconception.

I am a member of an Irish car enthusiasts' website with thousands of members from all over Ireland.
