Re: New (10/96) tougher Boom Car Law in Chicago

Great, except I think 75 feet is too lenient. I suggest
30 feet. I have even tested this. Once I turned on the
radio of my car at a volume loud enough so that people
inside the car could easily hear it.
I left the window rolled down, then paced off approximately
30 feet before the sound completely disappeared. A 30-
foot tolerance would not place anyone playing the radio
at reasonable volume at risk for legal consequences..
If it's loud enough to be heard for 75 feet, then it's loud
enough to annoy a lot of people. If you're sitting on your
front porch watching the sunset, unless you have a very
large front yard you are going to still hear a lot of boom
cars with a 75-foot tolerance.
