Where's the police? I need some sleep!

Every morning I am awoken at 3AM by a paper carrier for the Register Guard...she guns her LOUD four wheel drive up the driveway, around the side and back out again. She roars up the street.

Wow!...I need some uninterrupted sleep.

I tried talking to her in person..She was rude and surley. Her supervisor informed that in no uncertain terms she would continue delivering the newpaper in this manner! The delivery window is between 2 and 5AM. Too bad, if she wakes up the whole neighborhood!

So Where's the police here in Lowell? She BREAKING the PeACE!

I grew up in Eugene and Springfield. I am a native Oregonian. I love living in Lowell...but I need to be able to get some sleep!

It is mighty hard to get back to sleep after the road raging paper carrier wakes me up at 3AM!

Wow! What a great rep for the newspaper. Not. I understand that she needs to earn a living, but she sounds like a jerk.

Here's an idea or two. First, go over her supervisor's head. Explain the problem and offer solutions, such as not revving her engine out of consideration or checking her muffler. If you do not get satisfaction, let them know that you will be reporting it as noise pollution or seeking legal counsel or advising the neighborhood to cancel all of their subscriptions or even all of the above. The paper is free online anyway, and the Sunday paper is cheap.

Do it in writing, as well, and submit it to the newspaper's editor, The Oregonian and a few local news stations.

If worse comes to worst, you could always get some of those noise reduction headphones or industrial earplugs.

Good luck. I'd be pissed off, too.
