NY Revenue Generating Laws Effecting Motorcycles
 
Although the noise code legislation was signed by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in December 2005, giving the city 18 months to prepare, it has caught many people off guard, according to executives in industries that are directly affected. Calling for fines of less than $100 up to many thousands of dollars, it applies to a disparate array of noises from many sources.

Barking dogs, heavy construction, garbage trucks, nightclubs, personal stereos, poorly muffled motorcycles and loud air-conditioners are all covered.

--The article goes on to state that one of the first offenders was an Ice Cream truck playing it's jingle. I've heard Ice Cream truck jingles. EVERY motorcycle is louder than an Ice Cream truck.

An ice cream truck violates the noise ordinance? LOL! Welcome to pu$$yville. Oh boo hoo. I heard an ice cream truck. I saw my neighbor smoke a cigarette outside near my window. I'm gonna die of cancer. Oh boo hoo hoo. I'd better run to the govt!

Freaking pansy@ss society being run by the whiners.

Maybe they should rename it 'New York Shytty'

..yes, but have you heard some of those ice cream truck jingles? The one in my neighborhood has a repetitive rendition of the edelweiss song, with what sounds like a Philippina nurse from Kaiser Permanante shouting "HELLO" every few seconds. It's like the ice cream truck from Hell.

But that's nothing compaired to the OTHER ice cream truck that plays "La Cucaracha" on what sounds like a harpsichord.

That's when I reach for my revolver...

Just a reminder
 
I come from the largest, area wise,congressional(sp?) district east of the Mississippi. There is more to NY than Westchester County and south. I vote NYC becomes a District a'la DC.

Oh, I agree. Upstate New York is excellent. Finger Lakes area is very nice.

I hear ya, mugwump. I'm from Illinois (not Chicago). The rest of the state is overshadowed by the behemoth.

It is worse for New York, though. At least the we don't have millions of people living in "Illinois, Illinois".

Just remember, without Chicago, Illinois would be Iowa! Yuck! :wink:
