Loud boomboxes are nuisance

To the editor:

Everyone who received a Democrat or bought one last week got a yellow paper flyer with the city ordinances on it, asking that all residents cooperate with the following ordinances. That means all residents in the city.

Ordinance #1392 is in regard to nuisances. There is no mention of cars or trucks with those very, very loud boomboxes they have installed in their cars and trucks, which are a nuisance as they drive up and down our city streets, even in the middle of the night. When they drive by my house, my windows rattle and things I have hanging on my walls rattle and shake. I worry that they will fall off the walls and break. It’s bad enough that cars and trucks are loud enough with their mufflers, but those boomboxes need to go.

In Ordinance #1269, you must keep your dog from constant barking and disturbing others. I would rather hear a barking dog than those boom, boom, boom’s going by my house.

The city needs to put in another ordinance. I remember a few years ago in some towns, when you went by the hospitals you were warned by a sign that stated, ‘No loud noises.’

I know that I’m not the only one that does not like the noise, as I have had neighbors and friends tell me the same thing, but maybe if I complain about it some others will step forward.
