Is disturbing the peace still a punishable offence? If so, how does one go about stopping the sonic waves that bombard a home via passing motorists with bass booster speakers that vibrate so intensely it disturbs one's heart rythm? They are in and out of the block like bandits and impossible to catch. Any ideas on how peace can be restored? Seriously, I am a heart-patient and it sometimes upsets my heart rythm.

Get the tag number and call the complaint into the police. It will also help if you tell them about your heart. They can and will give them a ticket for the loud noise.

I'm not minimizing your condition, but 40 years ago when I was their age, we liked loud tailpipes, glasspacks, headers, etc. I'm sure that there were complaints back then too. I had to change my exhaust system after I had paid to have it installed loud and paid for a ticket.

Im just about sick at tired of that silver Trans Am with the chrome rims and the orange/black Camaro that go flying by everywhere and rev their engine up wherever they go. I heard the kid who drives one of them hit a van because of his nonsense and could have injured the innocent people in it. Stupid childish nonsense from older kids that need to act their age. If you have a fast car take it to the drag strip and please stop showing it off to the town, no one wants to hear burnouts and loud cars at night or even in the day, it just gets so tiring and annoying.

I was referring to the comment was made regarding "if you remember when you were young" and all the ways that he thought it was cool back in his day to have glass packs and custom loud exhaust. His point was that kids will be kids and we were almost all there at one point.

So, let me if I've got this right.

Almost everyone on topix was railing in regards to the smoking ban in kansas stating people should be able to smoke in public regardless of who had to breath in the toxic fuems, but now everyone thinks it's ok to report someone for what amounts to noise polution.

I will take a stereo passing by my home over a smoker in a restaurant in day of the week, but that is not my point, my point is how can you be ok with one and against another when they are nearly the same situation.

I can NOT go to a restaurant that allows INCONSIDERATE people smoking.. I CANNOT leave my house or yard when an INCINSIDERATE car owner with a loud stereo system drives by or parks nearby... THAT my friend is the difference.

OK, I can understand that, however the freedom of speech and expression allows for someone to as loudly as they wish. in some communities they may need a permit if a certain decible level is exceeded, I don't know if coffeyville has such a law, and even if it did it would come down to "he said she said" and waste our officers time.

This is clearly a situation where if tolorance must prevail. Actually, I believe now that I think of it, between the hours of 8am and 11pm there is no disturbing the peace.

As I look around town and listen to the scanner and see the unemployed and the welfare cases, and the drug transactions going on sometimes in plain sight I really would be pretty pissed if I were in law enforcement and some crybaby calls me with a tag number and some stupid complaint regarding a car stereo. I would probably tell them to deal with it , as tactfully as possible, and go back to dealing with stuff that actually mattered in the community.

I agree..I do not know and I don't think it does, Coffeyville, has such a law... I do not agree that freedom of speech allows anyone to infringe on anothers right to be secure in their own home..One of the reason I moved from my PAID FOR home just west of Willow was the cars driving by always thumping. Even in my own house with the doors closed you could hear it..Constant.I told my own grown son when he came over and I could hear and feel his stereo...Just to leave and next time he came to my house I BETTER not be able to hear him coming.. I feel there should be a law limiting how far your stereo can be heard from..I believe Independence has one and we need one..

I must say, I'm more playing devil's advocate on this one. It actually annoys me too. The only reason I even posted was because I thought some very good advice was given in the first or second response in regards to how kids will be kids. One thing I can't stand is when someone doesn't like something someone else is doing and takes it to the point of wanting laws against it or legal action taken.

Grouchy old folk wanting to just take the joy out of life. I know that's a stretch in regards to the conversation at hand, but my thought is that in this world you have to deal with other people and thier annoyances.

Now if it's a constant hour after hour problem in an area, by all means have the police monitor and see if they can assist in making some changes, but if it's the occassional passerby, I'm sorry, my opinion is and always will be shut up and deal with it.
annoyed as well

I live on First street, which has to be about the worst place for this. I also have a loud car stereo as well. I do not however play it so loud that it shakes other peoples windows. That I believe to be intrusive to others. Ive thought about calling the cops but doubt it would do any good.

Dzany does have a legitimate gripe. The bass that is put in cars is the culprit that causes the malfunction in hearts. The bass is the part of the noise that should be banned. Scanners are illegal to have as well as boosters hooked up to CB radios and many other electronic gadgets. If scanners and boosters can be censored, I think that the bass enhancers, whatever it's name is, should be illegal.

You don't have to be old to have heart problems. I know people of all ages that has heart problems amd it's not fun. Dzany has every right to want them things turned down so that they don't mess with his heart rhythm. He would like to live in peace a little longer. How would you react, or feel if you knew that it was your stereo that caused him and many others with heart problems their deaths. If the truth was to be known, there's probably a hundred, or more people in this town with the same problem, but they haven't spoken out.

Dzany was given the right by the Declaration of Independence to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We all have them rights as long as our rights don't interfere with other people's rights. The loud music is infringing on Dzany's rights and many hundreds of other individuals in this town.

I also live on 1st street close to a stop sign. When these young people have their loud bass on pull up to that stop sign and take off, the music is heard a little longer than for them to just be passing by. I have mentioned to my wife that I wish that there would be a ray gun invented that I could aim at the cars and pull the trigger and fry all of the electrical wiring in those vehicles, because I'd do it to every one of those with that loud bass. Of course the ray being shot has to be invisible so that no one will know where it came from and I wouldn't get in trouble.

There is a guy that comes by my house about every night with REAL LOUD music. The bass is so loud that it bounces the dog off the floor! When I replace my windows I'm sending his deft ass the bill. We have a bunch of elderly people in this town that really don't need this kind of thing going on. I also think that no one reports the loud music. If you don't report it and file a complaint then I guess you can't complain. I think I will file a complaint the next time this guy comes by at 11:30 at night. If you really want to hear loud music just pull into K&S on 11th street. Not only is the music LOUD from some of the cars their dumbass blockes the front door with their car. I even quit shopping there because most times you can't hear what you are doing or even get into the building. I don't mind loud music but there is a limit.

Trouble is, a good lot of the ones creating this noise are intentionally doing it to be annoying. I think that being in the hearing aid business in a few years would be very lucrative. As loud as it is from the outside, I can only imagine what it is doing to their hearing on the inside.

What really annoys me more than anything, is the ones who leave their stereo blaring in a parking lot while they go into a store, or fuel up. A good lot of the time, what little of the lyrics that you can understand are quite obscene. There are older folks, and children who don't need to be exposed to this type of garbage.

Freedom of speech and expression is good, but respect for other people is also good. Seems to be kinda one sided, though.

You still don't get it! This person has a heart condition...smoking out in the open is no different than you grilling in your back yard and inhaling the smoke you are creating...it all contains carbon monoxide...

I have taken limbs there Monday through Friday 4pm to 6pm. I believe that they're open Saturday mornings, also. They may have longer hours, but that is the hours that I've been there in the past.
