to LAPD in North Hollywood
noise problems are mental health issues
There are two problems that are growing around L.A.
I live in North Hollywood, on Lankershim, between Sherman Way and
Saticoy. Car Alarms and permits for outdoor gatherings complete
with live bands and D.J.'s.
One of the focal points is a "business" known as Salon De Renta
Para Fiestas. I'm told they have a permit, but this is an empty
lot with no building on it. Just an overhang that acts as a band
shell. There are a lot of apartments and houses nearby and we are
not happy about this. It's hard to believe they got a permit in
the first place. You can hear the music up to several blocks away.
What were you thinking? This is clearly a violation of my civil
rights. I have a sneaking suspicion the owners of the business did
not tell you it was outside.
The second problem is car alarms. They are almost always false alarms,
and the laws concerning them are a joke. The owners have no idea
they are even going off most of the time. You need to update the
ordinances to correct the problem. If the alarm goes off twice within
a short period of time, it should be a ticketable offense. By the
way, the same places that sell these alarms, also sell car stereos
with deep bass subwoofers that are in violation of laws already
Although these may seem like small problems, they will become big
problems if nothing is done. It's Sunday morning. I spent five hours
last night having to listen to music from a nearby party, and an
hour already today, listening to a car alarm constantly going off.
I'm not putting up with this any longer.
This is a Mental Health Issue!
