Kid Level Loudness

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) Children passersby, whose ears are close to the source of the electrified noise, are especially prone to loud levels of sound projecting from the amplifier. In this Jan. 14 photograph, noisemakers use the amplifier to preach to people on the sidewalk, typically no more than six feet away. One must ask if the amplifier is intended to reach passersby or harass the neighborhood residents? (Copyright © 2006. David Klavitter)

Please sign me up. I live at 18th and S and the revellers wake me constantly Friday and Saturday nights.

I have no intention of restricting their right to speech...only reducing the decibel of their stupidities...
