People who don't disable or avoid the honk-on-lock behavior are idiots. Years ago when I bought a BMW that I found made a "wolf whistle" sound every time it was locked or unlocked, I rushed it to a shop to have them disable it. They hook up a computer, enter a code, and it's done. Every ot...

Nope, there is no solution. You can of course wear earplugs, but that won't solve the issue. You'll still get woke up, and you'll feel nervous about not hearing potential burglars or issues with family members who may need help in the middle of the night, if you live with any. And get used to being ...

I'd favor an amendment that fully legalized shooting people who operate extremely loud vehicles for a week or more. No joke. P.S. It's "a historic," not "an historic." When choosing between "a" and "an," it's the sound of the subsequent word that matters, not ...

Ear plugs are irrelevant to them. The noise from scumbag Harleys do this, and of course scumbag bass music blasters do ...

I'd be interested in something like this. Someone representing this site mentioned to me a few years ago--after I begged for help--that high-dollar sound equipment could be rented. He told me to let him know if I wanted more info. I repeatedly said yes, but never got a response.

I am so very SICK of people defending the scumbags who choose to operate loud vehicles. And I'm just as sick of people acting like I am the one who is wrong and out of line. As I write this, I can barely keep my bloodshot eyes open. I was woken up an hour ago at 5:20 AM by what I know to have been a...
