And I've got no problem with loud music on the highway, but if it rattles the drinking glasses in my kitchen cabinet and makes the cat freak out and climb the drapes, that's pretty shitty. Again, NOBODY in their homes wants to hear that ****. Not one person is wishing you would linger longer so they could "get down" to your "dope beats."

Just keep it out of the neighborhoods. You are harshing my mellow.


Edit: I don't like ice cream trucks either.

I live off a busy road, the worst is motorcycles of all kinda, big trucks, idling gas tankers, ricer bois with fart cans. the least bothersome is a thumping stereo.

I *always* mute my stereo when I go through my neighborhood past 9pm. I don't run my air compressor past 9 pm. I don't even drive my motorcycles past 10. I adjust my headlights low. My buddy, who I was picking up from an international airport after just getting off the freeway, opened the trunk, where the speaker is, and yes, it's louder with the trunk open.

How about instead of telling me to grow up - who spent two months stopping in the street anyone I could to ask them if my exhaust was too loud after putting in my 3" - you read what I wrote. People on the sidewalk were asking me what the cop wanted. My buddy in the passenger seat could hear the cop talking in a normal voice OVER the radio.

Abe...I'd fight it. It won't go anywhere...but I'd do it just on the basis that you probably weren't in a situation for which the law was designed. It's one thing to enjoy good music on a nice system, it's another to impinge on the rights of others. It's something else entirely to issue a ticket under the premise of the latter when that's not the case.
This is what I'm talking about - I've had my radio loud enough to make the ears bleed. This was not one of those times. The guy spent 30 minutes trying to come up with something to write a ticket for. He was being a dick and I want to fight it, I appreciate the advice.

Beating a dead horse here.


This tape measure thing is interesting, though. I'm thinking of bringing in photos of my car and asking the cop to tell me which of these photos is the car 50 feet away in.

Sound Amplification Devices

27007. No driver of a vehicle shall operate, or permit the operation of, any sound amplification system which can be heard outside the vehicle from 50 or more feet when the vehicle is being operated upon a highway, unless that system is being operated to request assistance or warn of a hazardous situation. This section shall not apply to authorized emergency vehicles or vehicles operated by gas, electric, communications, or water utilities. This section does not apply to the sound systems of vehicles used for advertising, or in parades, political or other special events, except that use of sound systems on those vehicles may be prohibited by a local authority by ordinance or resolution.

Thanks for the link. :-)

So, I guess it comes down to what is a highway - this was the main passenger pickup lane for the airport.

(Or permit the operation of? I wonder how many stock cars COULD be heard from 50 feet away? Even turning on a stereo with the volume down, is illegal?)

Thank god we don't have retarded laws here. 25ft, seriously? That pretty much means you can't have the stereo on at all, especially at night. You can here a whisper from 25ft. Its good they take the time to enforce laws like this when people are being killed and robbed.

Is your ticket specifically that you violated ordinance 27007?

I don't like hearing the **** either, but it does come with living in the city. Trains, planes and automobiles; oh my.

A gated community and living in the country fixes most of the sound issues. Well except for the occasional late night poaching/varmit shooting/dynamiting fish.

Go sleep in a real warzone for a week. That'll give you idea of some really annoying ****.

Blackhawks flying 50 ft over your trailer every morning at 0500.
F-16's taking off in pairs on afterburner every few hours.
Mortar and rocket attacks that trip the warning sirens (they sure know how to celebrate Ramadan).
The Phalanx trying to shoot them down (Phalanx CIWS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Car stereos and Harleys? I sleep like a baby.

Abe, it sucks about the ticket. Go fight it in court just on principle.

Chris

To the OP;

What is your traffic record like? If it is clean, I would say you have a -really- good chance of having it dismissed. If not, well, you still have the highway detail to work with.


What is the cost of the fine?

The fine? $35. The For-The-Glory-of-San-Diego added bonus charges? Another $100-150.. Cool, huh?

It's utterly the principle of the thing. I just wish they'd ******* tax us instead of picking out people based on the biases of individual not-cool-enough-to-get-a-car flatfoots. Took 25 minutes out of my day, and utterly ruined the day if not the week of two engineers working to keep our world a safer place - you know, by actually DOING something which helps.

I'm sure it'll help the city to **** me off and have me move to some state where they let you ******' breath.

Anyway, yeah, my record is fine, I get hit once every 18 months with some bullshit ticket and then take traffic school. The last one was for lanesplitting. They study how to write tickets you can't fight. There is no legal speed, legal volume, etc. The cop says he didn't like the look on your face, and the judge fines you for it.

Welcome to America. Home of the "Do what I say, not what I do."

Law here is nothing on your vehicle may be heard at 50 feet. Lets make a list!

2009 Crown Victoria. How about the cooling fans on the radiator at 50 feet.
Police Radio can be heard at 50 feet
How about their stock exhaust system?
Engine noise, not exhaust related.
2010 Harley Police bike exhaust
2010 bone stock showroom Harley motorbike
Hemi Police Charger exhaust
The rock hard **** *** dunslop tires they put on city vehicles
A bone stock showroom diesel 3/4 ton pickup truck at idle
Moth farting?? Maybe not at 50.. most likely 45 it'll fade away
Any vehicle traveling over 20mph?

Another jerkoff law money making law, just like ALL the rest of the traffic laws. Don't know about where you live, but money made off worthless pigs writing traffic tickets gets put into a general spending fund, where its spent on anything they feel like. Like those stupid piece of **** charger cop cars, crotch rockets to catch those "criminals" on their crotch rockets, more stupid LIDAR guns to make even more money, traffic cameras, speed cameras, etc.

Yet when I call the city because 19 people who live around me have 2+ dogs a piece and leave them outside 24/7 barking non ******* stop........ Do they give a flying ****? Nope!
