“There are often two to four leafblowers at two houses blowing at the same time. Our neighbor has a sound meter, and the noise very often exceeds limits that can damage hearing. During the day, the noise affects retirees, sick people at home, people who work at home, and young children, who are more vulnerable to noise. Neighbors who work at home have said that they have to end business calls on the phone because of the noise.”
