Sound Off

I think there was a law passed against loud, thumping stereos. What are the regulations of the noise ordinance? And what do you do if someone is in violation of the ordinance?

Toni Wheeler, a staff attorney for the city, said: "Section 17-116 of the city code generally prohibits persons operating a vehicle on a street, highway, alley, parking lot or driveway to operate a sound system within or on the vehicle so that the sound is heard a distance of 50 feet or more from the vehicle.

"A person found in violation of this provision may receive a citation from a police officer, and if convicted, fined a minimum of $60."
