I mailed this letter to the Mayor and City Council Today
March 13, 2009 Dear Mayor & City Council
There needs to be a Updated Ordinance/Law/Effort about the “BOOM Cars(Trucks,Houses). They play Loud Music(If you can call it that), Mostly just BOOM BOOM BOOM in a Pattern of Subsonic Noise. The City want to attract more Retired People(I saw it in the Newspaper) Older People don't like BOOM cars. In my Neighborhood I have called the Police many times (It seems like over 70 times) It is useless to call them. The noise stops after they come for 1 hour or a few hours or maybe at best a day or two.
Then it starts right back up. They rotate around the neighborhood. They Start the Subsonic Music , Open their Car doors and go inside their house. While Blasting the neighborhood.
Drug Dealers use BOOM cars to advertise their drugs. How do you think drug users find drug dealers ? BOOM cars. Subsonic Noise and Infra Sound damages the human body. Ear Plus and Headphones will not keep the noise out. And the damage can be permanent. Strokes and Heart attacks are not uncommon. BOOM car operators have had their lungs collapse. You don't even have to hear it for damage to occur. Infra Sound has been used by the military.
Sound Meters only can pick up Subsonic with the C scale (There is A B C etc) A is used most for loud noise. Subsonic and Infra Sound can only be measured by the C scale. My Idea is: The First Time the BOOM car/House gets a Warning.
The Second Time they get a $500.00 Ticket.
And the Third Time a $1000.00 Ticket AND they are Arrested
The Fourth Time & More Times the $1000.00 Ticket and being Arrested, Plus their Auto is confiscated for 30 days at a local wrecking yard.
Plus NO Sound meter is used , if the noise/music can be heard 10 feet away from their Auto/House then that is a Violation. Thank You *My Contact Info here*
P.S. I am having to put Insulation on the outside of my house, And I don't think it will be enough to keep the noise out. Please help as the Police are tired of me calling them for BOOM cars in my neighborhood. When I get home from work it is never ending Subsonic Noise from them.
