The original post for this is now 5 years old. I'm wondering if anything has been done since this meeting/forum took place. People, you have got to respond to these posts so they know you are interested, paying attention. Please, we need a lot of voices. The noise-makers have a lot of advocates, the...

Still a little confused, getting what programmed?
Funding for what?
What would this project do specifically?
What would you accomplish with these smartphones?
I see you mention monitoring noise, how exactly and then what?

I'm sorry to say, most of you will not have any luck with law enforcement. They are often a huge part of the problem not part of the solution. If you call the police or sheriff with a noise complaint out here where I live, they usually just laugh. They certainly won't show up. If you call again, the...

I agree, just trying to give the benefit of the doubt. It is scary to think that these selfish, obnoxious, rude people with all of their "entitlement" behaviors are the people who will be in positions someday (if not already) to become even more rude and obnoxious and to pass it on to othe...

I'm sorry, I have no experience with cat repellents. I am a cat owner and would not use them. However, I do use insect and rodent repellents that plug into the outlets. They are supposed to be hypersonic, heard by the insects and rodents but are not supposed to be heard by humans. They are easily he...

Wow, that's incredible that your lawyer friend found nothing directly relevant. I figured it might be difficult but not impossible.
Too many people have given up, live miserable lives because they can't do anything but accept.
Good luck with your suit and with your apartment manager.

I'm half asleep here, is this something that's out there and we need to find it and learn how to set it up? Or does someone need to develop this app to monitor the noise? I think you have a great idea. I'm not very technologically literate, but if you explain what to look for...

Motorcyclists have their own lawyers, so there should be lawyers to take a citizen's suit against the motorcyclists. Just be careful who you retain. Go by word of mouth or look in public records. Most suits are a matter of public record. See who successfully won a suit against a violator. A citizen ...

To msquiet, your post is not pathetic, don't ever feel that. At least you were trying to come up with a solution. I don't really understand the concept of what you were saying though. Hopefully, you are still reading the posts and can explain what you were talking about. What devices? Do you have a ...

Many good points have been made on this post, I just wish the public was more aware of how much harm they do with their loud bass. It most certainly is not a 'right' to infringe your noise on others. If you want to listen to your music that loud, wear headphones. The 'bad egg smell' is one good anal...
