It would be a great source of revenue for these cities and towns to ticket and fine these noise polluters.
That's a fantastic idea....let's take time out of the busy day of a police officer catching criminals and murderers so that he can ticket someone for using a weedwacker to early in the morning...must be nice living the the freakin pleasantville that you all seem to live in. Get over it...it's a little bit of noise

Just like every day, he stomped again yesterday and I missed part of the interview with Sara Palin. Her and Opra was talking and he made so much noise I couldnt hear. Sara is a real interesting person. I hope she runs for President next year. I wish I could hear what she said.
Shelly...you will be happy to know that in true politician form...Sarah Palin did not answer that question. And I like Sarah...but if she were ever to be elected into the White House in any capacity, I dont think it would take her long to become an entirely TRUE politician...just like all the rest

Huh? LMAO! I handed over a heroin house to the cops, and they did NOTHING, even after somebody OD'd there and it's business as usual selling dope day and night.

The LEAST they can do is hand out a few tickets. Oh wait, that would be work.

There's not too much you can do about the noise unless it's before 7:00 am and after 11:00 pm. Last week there were landscapers using a weedwhacker in my neighborhood at 6:30 in the morning. And we have loud music, motorcycles, car alarms, loud car stereos, sirens. Those car stereos rattle everything in the house. But there's really nothing that we can do about it, regardless of the laws that are on the books. All the cops would do is come by and tell them to be quiet. And then after the cops leave they start right up again. It happens no matter where you go and we just have to deal with it.
Aha! That is why we need to rewrite noise law completely, not just amend them. This whole "before 7 am and after 10 pm" business has been rendered ridiculously meaningless by advances in sound technology. Twenty years ago the greatest artificial noise humans could generate was the honking of a car horn. Today amplified music can be sent across an entire town.

We need to replace the "after 10 pm" rule with a flat DECIBEL LIMIT, applicable at whatever moment of night or day. The only exceptions would be brief emissions of sirens by emergency responders like police, firefighters or ambulances. Also, pass a law that anyone broadcasting amplified sound outdoors must use only focused sound, never general-direction sound, and must focus the sound beam only at areas where he has a legal right to send sound.

Ever wonder why Bush put in the brother of the largest opium grower in the world as VP of Afghanistan ? Ever wonder why tons of opium get into those USNavy ships then unload to Mexicans ?
