    Noise laws are stupid. Apparently, they might do this in the uk, but they say the will measure the noise level.

    I mean, even if they did measure the amount of decibels; it would be an inaccurate reading. This is because music is made from wavelets - meaning the volume is not constant. I cant really see any possible way these measurements could stand up in court, unless you were listening to a sine wave at a constant volume

    Here at MS State University, the campus newspaper prints all of the police reports (its a very small town). At least once a week, this one is in there:

    Wednesday, 2:43 PM -- Student was referred to the dean of students for playing amplified music while driving on (insert street name here)
    Debt as of 1/1/05: $34,354.48
    Debt as of July 4, 2007: $0.00 explanation

    Uni. Of Southern Mississippi has that in the school paper. I got a noise ordaniance violation ticket on campus in my accord (When i still had it) and I had the windows rolled up. WTF? It was embarrassing too, because it was a bicycle cop that pulled me over. I look up and i see this little Huffy looking bike with flashing blue lights on it. Now that I look back on it, its funny, the ticket was only like $25.

    Last time i check the law down here it was 95-96dbs as a limit for a car stereo or noise from the car itself.
    And i dont thing your everyday cop would have an idea how loud 96db is.
    So the first thing you do is you arguee that the stereo wasnt aat 96dbs or over...
    And simply ask him to prove it. Let see the look on his face after that!

    I actually thought that the cops could get you for playing music too loud, thats why i have my remote in my hand, and my finger ready to hit the ATT button (mute)

    96dB, thats about the legal limit for car exhausts too, my car is above that, and i havn't been done yet, (or my blue parking lights )

    I think that it will be entirly up to the cop if you get a ticket or not, isn't every thing tho?
