Are the neighbors on your block having a little too much fun?
Back in the day, YOU may have been the life of the party. They don’t call it Detroit Rock City for nothing! But life moves on and things have changed a bit – or a lot. Now you’ve got responsibilities, a job, a family, maybe even children. You still like to get your groove on as much as the next guy, but now there’s a cut-off time, one the neighbors don’t seem to share.
Does this sound familiar? Your subdivision, block or neighborhood once seemed so peaceful. Then one night, as you’re enjoying your nice, quiet life, the first party pops up. And it never seems to end, not even long after you’ve gone to bed, laying there awake and frustrated at the noise. Weekend after weekend – or worse, weekday after weekday – the loud, disruptive parties just keep coming. You don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but things have definitely gotten out of hand.
So, what can you do about the party crowd that’s keeping you and your family up at night?
Check Your City Ordinances
Most cities have quiet hours that usually begin at 11 p.m. However, in suburban or rural communities with a lower population density, such ordinances may not be in place. If your city does have a noise ordinance, try having a conversation with the residents of the party house to see if they might comply, or at least move things indoors and turn down the volume when it gets later.
Call the Police
This generally isn’t our first choice, but if the hosts are just completely inconsiderate, there may not be another choice. Repeated offenses may result in fines, which will hopefully be a deterrent and help rein things in.
