I live in a lovely little rural town in beautiful British Columbia.
I actually have a difficult time appreciating this little town because of the incessant growling and cracking of mufflers from motorcycles, trucks and cars?
If it was a dog barking incessantly, then would it be acceptable to ask for law enforcement?
If a neighbour was playing their loud music relentlessly day and night, then would it be acceptable to ask for law enforcement?
If it was your brother or father working shift work; your grandmother who was ill, or your sister’s baby who’s trying to sleep, or your own sleep was in jeopardy, then would it matter?
Do we believe that this unremitting noise of mufflers is contributing to the quality of lives of British Columbians, let alone this small town I live in?
Did you know that when speaking to the offenders, I was told that I should move, and it was simply a product of where I live?
Did you know that when I called city hall, I was told there was no recourse and no noise bylaws in existence, and that I simply live too close to the highway.
Is the sound of all this roaring and cracking contributing to the quality of our lives in Beautiful British Columbia?
Have we all become desensitized to these negative loud noises?
