What are the noise regulations for truck exhaust braking?
The only noise regulations is for a truck driving past at a steady rate at 50km/h. Nothing on changing gears nor braking, which are when trucks make the most noise.

Yes it is. According to the WHO, the health effects from noise of vehicles is about the same as from their pollutant emmissions.

The noise compliance levels set by the WHO are completely ignored by Australian road authorities.
