    Default My Letter to the sharrif

    If anyone has any further ideas, let me know. I gotta get this guy to stop. My kids need sleep.

    _____________

    Hello

    I am having a problem with a neighbor that lives across the street from me. This individual has a long track of waking my family up at all times of the night or morning. He is currently and has been unemployed for about 6 months.

    Recently he’s been a morning person. For example this morning he pulled his shop vacuum down to the sidewalk and proceeded to vacuum his car. Pretty big shop Vacuum that woke my whole family up at about 6:45 AM, he then proceeded to was his car. He did this same thing I believe Thursday at 7:15 AM when he was cleaning his car pad in front of his garage (my house is about 50 feet away at most). He has a tendency to start mowing his lawn at 7:30 AM at times. I once even caught him pulling out his gas power water sprayer to clean off his boat on the sidewalk at 7:15 AM.

    This history goes way back. And I have spoken to him many times.

    Last year he would fire up his large class dirt bike up and go ride it around at 11:00PM. Almost every night for the entire summer month he would simply fire it up and rev it up. These incidents have disappeared and moved to morning activity.

    At this time I am starting to take notes of time and date and what I tried to do to stop it.

    For example this morning I yelled at him out the window to stop and that he woke up my whole family and he told me to “**** off”. This was at exactly 7:00AM.

    What do I do about this? Who do I call to report the problems as they are happening at these early times so that an officer can drop by and see what’s going on and maybe have a few words.

    Thank you for your time!

    Move? 7AM isn't obscenely early, and while I agree that the guy is a dick and very rude, there's not much the law or you can really do about it.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    7 am is the standard to start anything.......before that and he could maybe get slapped on the wrists with a ruler.

    There isn't much you can do.

    First off, yelling at him would probably make him do it earlier. Sounds like the "talking thing" has not worked. Any bylaws for noise level in your area? I for one am out of bed at 5:00am and always want to get going first thing in the morning. But I do respect those around me and never start any power tools before nine. If talking to this guy is totally out of the question then find out the law. Have you talked to other neighbors about this? Sometimes more is better. Good luck.

    I believe the laws in this area are 8AM to 10PM. For example, it is usual for people having big parties to have the cops called. They show up and will tell the host to keep it quite or they will shut it down. I've seen it a few times :)

    My neighbor next to me throws raging parties and gets them called on occasion. They show up every time :)

    But he invites all the neighbors so it’s never really an issue :)

    Same here, thats my rule. My Stereo rule is straitup 9:00PM (even thoughI could go to 10). I never play music loud after 9pm and turn down movies (usually bass sounds only) after 10pm.

    Yard work on weekends start ater 9am

    Found it:



    9.14.010 Public disturbance noises.
    It is unlawful for any person to cause, or for any person in possession of real or personal property to allow to originate from the property, sound that is a public disturbance noise. The following sounds are hereby determined to be public disturbance noises:

    (1) Frequent, repetitive, or continuous howling, barking, squawking or other noises made by any animal which unreasonably disturbs or interferes with the peace, comfort, and repose of receiving property owners or possessors; except that such sounds made by livestock, whether from commercial or noncommercial activities, and such sounds made in animal shelters, commercial kennels, veterinary hospitals, pet shops, or grooming parlors licensed under and in compliance with Title 8, Clark County Code, shall be exempt under this subsection.

    It shall be deemed a public disturbance noise under this subsection for a dog to bark, bay, cry, howl or make any other noise continuously and/or incessantly for a period of ten (10) minutes or bark intermittently for one-half (1/2) hour or more to the disturbance of any person at any time of day or night regardless of whether the dog is physically situated in or upon private property; provided, however, that a dog shall not be deemed a “barking dog” for purposes of this section if, at the time the dog is barking or making any other noise, a person is trespassing or threatening to trespass upon private property in or upon which the dog is situated or for any other legitimate cause the dog was teased or provoked to bark or make any other noise.

    (2) The frequent, repetitive or continuous sounding of any horn or siren attached to a motor vehicle, except as a warning of danger or as specifically permitted or required by law.

    (3) The creation of frequent, repetitive or continuous sounds in connection with the starting, operation, repair, rebuilding or testing of any motor vehicle, motorcycle, off-highway vehicle, or internal combustion engine, within a residential area, so as to unreasonably disturb or interfere with the peace, comfort and repose of owners or possessors of neighboring real property; provided, that this subsection shall not apply to the operation of lawn mowers, garden tools, chain saws or other power equipment used for building repair or ground maintenance between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

    (4) The use of a sound amplifier or other device capable of producing or reproducing amplified sound upon public streets for the purpose of commercial advertising or sales or for attracting the attention of the public to any vehicle, structure, or property or the contents therein between the hours of 8:00 p.m. of one day and 7:00 a.m. of the next day, except for emergency vehicles.

    (5) The making of any loud and raucous sound within one thousand (1,000) feet of any school, hospital, sanitarium, nursing or convalescent facility; which unreasonably interferes with the use of such facility, or with the peace, comfort, or repose of persons therein.

    (6) The use of a musical instrument, sound amplifier, or other device incorporating electrical signal volume control that produces or reproduces loud and/or raucous sounds which emanate frequently, repetitively or continuously from any building, structure or property so as to unreasonably disturb or interfere with the peace, comfort or repose of owners or possessors of neighboring real property.

    (7) Except as otherwise authorized by this chapter, the use, in a vehicle upon a public street or roadway, of a sound amplifier or other device capable of producing or reproducing amplified sound, which causes the sound to be heard from fifty (50) feet away; provided, this provision shall not apply to emergency, fire or police vehicles.

    Where applicable, proof of violation of the noise level limitations set out in Chapter 173-60 WAC shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of this section. (Sec. 1 of Ord. 1980-03-20; amended by Sec. 4 of Ord. 1991-11-09; amended by Sec. 1 of Ord. 2005-08-17)

    Unfortunately, even though it states 7am, by the time the sheriff arrives, it will be after 7am. If your neighbors are as pissed off as you, your best recourse is to find the guy a job. Beyond that, from living just across the river, your next best option is to get the law ammended to use db meter measurements (many portland suburbs have gone that route). That takes opinion issue away from the officer and gives him scientific proof, It makes enforcement much, much easier.

    About a bag of mothballs in the bike/mower tank should make things quiet for a day or two.

    Close to what I was thinking. Get a ton of m-80s and after he goes to sleep light one and throw it in his yard. wait about an hour and repeat. Done for this night, a couple of nights later do it again. Repeat until you are happy.

    Had bad neighbors and ended up chasing two of them with a running 18V circular saw. My neighbors were sweet as pie after.
    If he's married/attached, you might snap his photo and post it on a dating site, then mail the profile to the significant other.

    If I recall, you aren't legally responsible for anything you may do directly following being awakened in a disturbing fashion.
