New York City Guide to The New Noise Code: Nothing about Car Alarms
Not a damn word in it about car alarms. Also, the link to the DEP website listed here is no longer valid. It redirects to http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/air_and_noise/index.shtml, which in turn redirects to http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/air/index.shtml, which is a page about…air pollution. Great job, NYC.
I “reverse enginnered” the URL to find the actual Noise Complaints page: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/noise/index.shtml . You sure won’t find it by looking in the menu.
Also, what the HELL—are they serious about this? They’re linked to it: http://www.nyccouncil.info/pdf_files/bills/law05113.pdf. It’s some kind of spam advertising page.
NYC: you can do better.
