loud boombox radio cars

Am I the only resident of Chelsea fed up with these inconsiderate people who drive around blasting their car radios that are on steroids? Don't they realize what's going to happen to their hearing? I was stopped at a light and my steering wheel was vibrating from one of these fools. Why aren't the police enforcing the the City ordinances on the books that prohibit this nonsense?

I hear you. I wouldn't wish for banning the ownership but it'll be good to have some regulations with proper enforcement.

People playing loud music disturbing the whole neighbor are likely to do other inconsiderate things like not cleaning up after your dog, throwing garbage on the highway, insulting other people etc. all of which causes unnecessary disturbance and sometimes violence.

Somebody (or the society) should say "no, it's not OK to do those thing" before these immature people grows old and actually believes those things are OK to do and educate their children as such.

Do you know what's the main difference between those horrible countries and civilized countries? It is not who's smarter.(trust me. you'll find a lot of smart people in those horrible countries) It is about common sense being respected by most of the people living in it.

Like you, I'm a Chelsea resident. I grew up in a middle class, quiet, respectful, friendly town in Southern Maine (pop. <7,000.) I never knew things that I see in Chelsea/Everett actually existed, except in movies.

The amount of cars that drive by my house at 3am, 4am, 5am (on week nights) with bass maxed out, windows rolled down in the summer, is something that you have to experience to truly understand.

In addition, people will park on a sidewalk and honk for their friends to come to their car at all hours of the night, still with bass roaring. Nobody cares. Their friends will finally come down and the friends will yell at each other in Spanish. If it's in English, it's ebonic and several N words will be used. Some times, as I watch out of my window, childen will be in tow, getting into the car going to the next party or wherever people go at 3am on a Wedsnesday.

I could go on, I would love to, but it is too depressing. I truly wish I could have remained ignorant and moved elsewhere where some level of morals and respect exists. Because my life is truly sadder knowing the world has places like Chelsea and Everett.
