People steal CBs? :hmm:

subwoofers - aka weapons of bass destruction. It's nothing but noise pollution. I can feel them when they are nearby. Why do people feel like they can impose their musical "taste" on everyone around them? i wish there was an effective way to enforce the city ordinance.
Section 7.41.010 Loud and unnecessary noise prohibited.
(a) It is unlawful for any person to make, continue, or allow to be made or continued, any excessive, unnecessary, unusual or loud noise which creates a nuisance or injures or endangers the comfort, repose, health or safety of others, or which interferes with the use or enjoyment of property of any person of reasonable sensibilities residing in or occupying the area unless the making and continuing of such noise is necessary for the protection and preservation of property or the health and safety of some individual.
(b) The following acts, which enumeration shall not be deemed to be exclusive, are hereby declared to be noise nuisances in violation of this section and are unlawful:
(1) The playing or permitting or causing the playing of any radio, radio receiving set, television, phonograph, "boom box," loudspeaker, drum, juke box, nickelodeon, musical instrument, sound amplifier or similar device which produces, reproduces, or amplifies sound when done in such a manner or with such volume, intensity, or with continued duration so as to annoy, to distress, or to disturb the quiet, comfort, or repose of any person of reasonable sensibilities within the vicinity or hearing thereof. This subsection shall not apply to persons who have written authorization for an event which includes use of such a device, or to the police or public authorities who are using such a device in the performance of their duties.
Bass in yo face!
Go up to the hood.....there's old farts up there in conversion vans and old trucks with 5 cb whips and all that other crap that JC Whitney used to sell (curb feelers, stick on chrome, additional side markers etc)Quote:

I am also entertained by people with different priorites than I, when it comes to fixing up an old car.
I ended up next to a '78 Coupe Deville yesterday. It was in need of paint and body work. The fillers, of course, were shot. The engine was making noises it shouldn't. But he sure had a nice set of chrome wire rims and fancy red tint on the windows! :rolleyes:
One summer at a big annual car show downtown, some guys thought they could cruise thru and blast away with their system. The cops came down hard on them and shut them down. We already had bands playing the event thank-you.
I can't stand the boom noise from those cars too. I was told about a solution to it, get a tazer gun and zap their car antenna and it will burn their high dollar noise maker up. I have not tried this but I will try it on my neighbors car. And there is no way to prove what happened. I was told the speaker mounting bolts are loosened to make the speakers more annoying. I called the police on a black truck that goes by my house making that noise and the Deputy Sheriff sent 2 cars to their house. I hope they get caught driving and drinking when they get pulled over because of the noise. A DWI will cost them at least 5,000.
That is "short man syndrome". little man, big truck. I feel normal size at 6'1", my cousin is 6' 6".
I feel my extensive audio system is justifiable, as I do not use it for that, though it is far larger and louder than the ghettoblasters I have ever seen. More often than not, I keep the volume incredibly low and regardless, I do not listen to that BOOM-BANG-BOOM crap that is called music nowadays. If I do turn it any higher, it is only marginally so and that is only if I am on the interstate and the windows are down, so there is ambient noise to cancel out. Realistically, I think I keep mine (normally) below where people keep their factory stereo systems...It just has far higher potential, which is only used in appropriate situations where it will not disturb others...And one time in a parking garage, where a friend turned it up and set off every car alarm at Universal Studios...
As for using an electrical weapon to attack the antenna and disable the system, that sounds entirely impossible, given how a typical electrical system works. Regardless, didn't they stop making cars without power antennas in like...1970?
I broke his window out, stole the stereo unit, three speakers, all the change in the cupholders, broke his ignition lock, leaving the wires dangling to the floor and left a note that read "I hope this helps :) "
Most motor cycles accelerating a little harder than necessary on city streets are louder than someone driving around with big subs. Nobody seems to complain about them. Either way, the noise only lasts a few seconds as they pass by.
How exactly can you justify trying to cause hundreds or thousands of dollars in property damage through vandalism, because someone played loud music....?Quote:
