I have encountered numerous excessively and unnecessarily loud vehicles and motorcycles, while sitting in my living room even with windows shut or out for walks.
As a result I enquired with City Hall asking if there was a noise abatement by-law, and was advised there was not. I found that very disappointing.
These vehicles have obviously been modified outside of norms or have been neglected and in need of repair.
I think the City should take a serious look at this and implement new by laws to address it. We are only getting bigger and more populous, and our quiet City is getting noisier every day.
