If someone kept driving a snow (looks like a motorcycle/jetski thing) around your block every night?

It s annoying me ... it doesnt hurt anyone... it is just loud and he does it like 20 times before he stops - i think it is the people who just moved in a street down. he is not circling His block - ours is the next one over... usually around 10:30 -11 when i am trying to sleep.

  • Aghh! There is on on our block but he drives it around early in the morning (no idea why).

    They're illegal in our city & I have considered calling the police, but this seems petty.

    In any case, I feel your pain!

  • I'd be willing that if you live with in city limits, that the vehicle is illegal on the street and you can call the cops on the rider.

  • Maybe Santa brought it. Hopefully the novelty wears off or he finds a new place to ride it. If they're new to the nieghborhood, maybe an anon. letter w/ helpful hints about places to go to ride things like that. If he's w/in city limits, he risks getting a ticket. Good luck

  • I would say at that time of night the police might have something to say.

  • snowmobiles and atvs are allowed in our town on all trails, roads, and obviously the lake if it is frozen and i personally have no problem with them. i actually enjoy hearing them as it still tells me that people are at least enjoying something in their life right now. if you really have a problem with it i would try and ask him if he couldnt do it a bit earlier in the day or around his own block.

  • I live on a snow mobile trail so I feel your pain!
    After dark (usually 10:30pm) there are usually noise ordinances so you can defer to the police if you truely can't stand it.
    If I were in pain (and I usually am!) and couldn't sleep continuously because of this person's antics I would definately consider calling.

  • Is there any city noise ordiance past like 10:00 PM? I would call it in. I think that's pretty dangerous to do so unless you are in the country.

  • yes i know for a fact that the atvs and quads (thanks i learned a new word!) arent legal in city limits - noise control starts at 10 on weeknights. so it is illegal - but it is petty - like ppl said - you know someone is happy. an annon letter is a good idea but... god i hate to be that person. thanks for the ideas!- i know the cops here are cool - they make kids fix stuff and do comm service before they actually make reports on them... so i doubt they would do anything but tell him where he can go to do it. i guess i will see what i want to do if it continues..
