“A large van with a massive sound system shows up on the street blasting music for hours at a time, and about 50–100 cars and people follow them. It is definitely organized, [though] I’m not sure … how people are made aware of it. I’ve called the police every time, along with my neighbors, and an officer has never showed up. This is a 2–3 hour event of unbearable noise. I am told it happens in other areas of the city, and the police ignore the issue there also.”
