Why Doesnt cobden have a noise ordinance or if they have one enforce it......the mexicans and others could not be thinking of others when they drive by peoples homes late at night. I wonder if they realize they could be disturbing an elderly person who may be sick, someone may have a new baby, or they may be disturbing someone who has to get up early to go to work. Please have some common courtesy and turn the music down and try to make cobden a better community by treating your neighbors how you would want to be treated.

No sorry WowYou.... Take a trip to Cobden, it's only the Mexicans. Pretty sad for such a small town in the Midwest.

It's not just the Hispanics. You got your classic young ones and partying, non-Hispanic adults running around, too. I'm from there, I would know.

I agree with Sunshine, it's not just the Hispanic's. I live on a dead end road and the teenagers that grace us with their presence of loud music and loud mufflers on their vehicles are alot worse then actually living by the Hispanic's. It sounds like to me you just have a problem overall with different culture's. I have lived in Cobden for well over 25 yrs and it hasn't changed yet.

Cobden does have a noise ordinance. If you have a problem, call the authorities. It is a very simply phone call to make. Truthfully, getting on Topix to complain and point fingers isn't going to solve your issues, so why waste your time here? Life is too short ~ Just sayin... Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

The local white trash is as bad or worse than all the mexicans in Cobden.

We have complained several times actually. Has the 3 a.m. wake-up call that we receive every morning from the loud mufflers and music stopped? I'm afraid it has not, and more than likely will not.

Noise ordinance is from 8am to 10 pm in the country. You can shoot guns from that time. I know I'm always talking to police because my neighbor is a control freak. I know this because cops have come out and checked foid cards and then said since we are responsible and are not within town limits and shoot at noon there is nothing my neighbor can do. Although he is getting himself into trouble because now I can claim harassment and am doing so

That 3 a.m. Wake up call is someone that carpools to work and turns around on OUR dead end road or it could be the late night Amtrak. It's funny how quick people are to call the cops instead of just confront someone and be CIVIL about anything.

I suppose loud noise is something worthy of our taxpayer dollars considering your complaining about cops not doing their jobs? It's not like we're all earshot from a train that exceeds noise ordinance levels. I'd much rather the cops hang out with teens and catch their drug dealer friends than write tickets for noise complaints by elderly.

Maybe try being more considerate of other people and their situations. Not everyone can cough up $500 to a muffler shop because they don't like the noise. Quit being so judgemental and threatening people's lively hood for your petty noise complaints by giving them something to put on a criminal record.

You live in town for crying out loud, there will be noise.
