Noise nuisance

After night sets, Government Street seems to turn into a race track for the two-wheeled Noisters.

There is an increasing unpopularity for noisy motorbikes just in my neighborhood alone. After night sets, Government Street seems to turn into a race track for the two-wheeled Noisters.

If the muffler fell of my car it would still not be as noisy as a Harley, with the difference being that I would get a ticket. It looks like the police are afraid to approach those unshaven leather-clad old bikers.

It is my understanding that this noise bylaw exists, but the police are afraid to enforce it. Nabbing senior citizens for seat-belt violations seems a lot more safe for our finest.

Thank God that fall has arrived and our streets are quiet once more.
