“It’s hard to imagine the decibel levels of ATVs, motorcycles, and loud music from cars is legal, and I think police don’t want to deal with nuisance problems out of fear of what might result. It would be good if people got a ticket for breaking decibel limits in residential areas, the same way you get a ticket for going through a light or speeding more than ten miles over the speed limit around a school. Just some nudging in the right direction would help a lot. Police shouldn’t get involved, [but] there should be financial consequences for breaking the noise laws.”
