OK, so a law enforcement agent can come in my house.
and hear the noise himself. Then we have two people who
can testify in front of a judge. Why isn't that "objective" enough?
The other day I was talking on the phone to a court-appointed
mediator who deals with noise cases. Meanwhile, two nuisance
dogs nearby were barking their heads off. I opened the window
and brought the phone closer to it. She admitted that she could
hear it plainly. I asked her to make note of it, in the event I should
decide to file a complaint, which in my community would be
routinely referred to mediation.
