Have you handled noise disputes? I have neighbor who used

Customer Question

Have you handled noise disputes? I have neighbor who used their motorcycle to retaliate with revving the engine in his drive way (over 100dbls) in their driveway 6 feet from our bedroom. He now wakes us every morning during established quiet hrs. We are preparing a civil case and his attorney is claiming he protected because his driveway is a right of way.

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Speaking as a fellow motorcyclist and an attorney, their claim is absolutely false. Motorcyclists are as obligated under noise ordinances as any operator of any equipment. That is why many manufacturers make noise cancelling 'baffles' for their exhaust pipes, as they cut down on noise. Even if it is a right of way, having a right of way does not in any way permit excessive noise because the issues here are unrelated and dissimilar.
