I don't see why we should have to come up with any
instruments to measure "annoyance."
If the boom car can be heard from a distance of 30
feet, a cop should be able to write a ticket. Better
yet, he should be able to impound the vehicle and see
to the removal of the offending equipment -- all at the
boom car boy's expense.
If a cop can stand in the street and hear my neighbor's
recreational noise, then he should be able to write a
ticket on that basis, without having to measure the noise
level and without having to determine whether some
legal threshold of annoyance has been met.
