Approximately 30 years ago, the common council in Tell City passed a noise ordinance, No. 544.
As far as I know, it has never been enforced with any warnings or fines. Why?
The ordinance covers motor vehicles, trucks, mufflers, “music” boom boxes, etc. Noise level limit can be measured on a distance of not less than 15 feet from the noise source.
When it can be heard more than half a mile away, I would say that’s a violation.
Our streets were not intended for hot rodding, drag racing or excessive noise.
