Lawlessness is now a freedom

The Noise Control Act of 1972 established a national policy to promote a healthy, noise-free environment for all Americans. To enforce the Noise Control Act, the Office of Noise Abatement and Control (ONAC) was created within EPA. In 1981, the director of ONAC was informed that the Office of Management and Budget, under President Reagan’s order, was eliminating all funding for ONAC.
President Reagan stripped ONAC of its funding because of pressure from industries
affected by ONAC's noise regulations. The elimination of the federal noise office is responsible, to a significant degree, for the uncontrolled levels of noise pollution in the United States today.
In the almost thirty years since ONAC was abolished, a culture of noise has taken root
in American society. Whole new industries are thriving from noisy products aimed at disturbing the public peace.
Two of the chief noise-making industries in the United States today are the amplified car
stereo industry and the modified muffler industry. Cars with amplified stereo systems, known as “boom cars,”can be heard day and night roaming our neighborhoods and public places broadcasting sub-woofer noise pollution with impunity.
Noise at this level is unconscionable, yet we are
subjected to this outrageously harmful noise every day and our police and public officials do nothing.
It is now up to the local community to take action to protect ourselves from the damage this is doing to our health and property rights. The people of every community need to contact their local representatives and demand laws be passed to crack down on boom car noise and illegal exhaust noise. Noise pollution is not a right, it's a wrong.
