So, long story short, a house down the street sold, and the people that moved in have a blazer that has the LOUDEST muffler EVER. They come and go several times a day and night, and it's OBNOXIOUS. It's even more obnoxious when they let the car warm up and have it running.

Pretty soon we are going to have a sleeping baby who I will be DAMNED is going to be woken up by this asshole car.

Any nice way of telling them to fix it or I'm filing a damn police report? :lol:

Rich was thinking an anonymous letter to them would be a start.

He doesn't especially want to start shit with the neighbors, so he doesn't want to call the police and file anything, but we're not sure what to do.

Opinions?

"Hey, you realize you could get a ticket for the loud muff right?"

Nah, I'd rather send her to our other asshole neighbor 2 houses up the street that lets their dogs out with no leash, and they shit in our yard. :lol:

Aside from our neighbors RIGHT next to us on either side, and the ones across the street, our neighbors appear to be assholes. :lol:

Pro tip - Get babies used to sleeping with noise from day 1, or it will be hell when they get older.
Especially when they have older siblings.



Potato in the tail pipe will force them to buy a new muffler. :devil:

Yes, but I'm pregnant and slow and don't have the quick moves of a cat like I used to. Army crawling 3 houses up the street with a potato is not going to work. :rolling:

Ask them to warm up their car in the garage... with the door closed. Should solve the problem for you. :D

if you're going to write a letter, you just need to make a few good points, some ideas:
-Tell them to search google/google news for the term 'loud muffler arrest'
-vehicle can be impounded, break down the actual cost of this
-the longer you take to repair the more probability it can't just be welded but needs to be replaced
-won't pass inspection
-inspection can be revoked in a traffic stop [not actually sure that's true but they're probably not a very intelligent person so you can slip in a couple lies with a bunch of factual information]
-it's really fucking annoying and you heard another neighbor say he would call the police, wanted to give them a heads up to be cautious

Potato in the tail pipe will force them to buy a new muffler. :devil:


it could also kill them when the exhaust leaks into the cab, especially in the winter when the cab is sealed off
