Letter: City must enforce noise limits

To the editor:

The city of Lawrence needs to quickly start aggressively reinforcing the noise from vehicles. With spring weather around the corner, the loud music and mufflers affect the quality of life while passing through these streets.

I am suggesting a $75 fine for a first offense for this infraction and $200 fine for a second offense.

We need to start bringing some civility and improve the quality of life for those whom reside and visit this municipality. This will also be a good revenue source as I’m sure there will be many citations written on a daily basis. I would even suggest assigning a pair of officers to handle just the noise issue as it is rampant in houses and vehicles especially as the weather improves. We do currently have a noise ordinance issue but as you can see, we need to tighten up these restrictions.

Let’s make this city a better place to live and work!
