Shhhh: Kennett police to enforce new noise ordinance | Crime
If you like cranking up the tunes when you cruise, better learn to turn them down and roll up your windows.
Kennett Police Chief James Paine says beginning February 1, officers will start enforcing a noise ordinance passed at Tuesday night’s city council meeting.
The ordinance reads:
"It is unlawful for any person, while operating, driving or parking any motor vehicle, to use or operate any electronic device, radio, stereo, tape player, disc player or other device for the producing or reproducing of sound in such a manner that it disturbs the peace, quiet and comfort of persons in the vicinity of the motor vehicle, unless said person is operating under the authority duly and properly given by the City of Kennett. It is a prima facie violation of this section if the sound emanating from the electronic device, radio, stereo, tape player, disc player or other device for producing or reproducing sound in or on the motor vehicle is clearly audible from a distance of fifty (50) FEET."
According to Chief Paine, the ordinance was in response to numerous complaints from the public.
