“It’s absolutely ridiculous. I can’t sleep: It keeps me up at night. I tried earplugs and ended up with an ear infection. … Something needs to be done. The police are usually very responsive and send someone out, but the second they leave, the residents turn the music back up. There needs to be stiff fines and penalties. The noise from someone in their car or house should not be able to drown out the airconditioner / TV / fan in my home half a mile away.”
