Amplifier-Awakened D.C. Babies Are Pissed

Nobody should have the right to force loud noise--no matter the content--into anyone’s private space.

District of Columbia parents and grandparents are furious because the current law allows unreasonable amplified people with impunity to wake babies.

Inside the walls of their home. Within their cribs. Surrounded by cuddling arms.

And Councilmember David Catania reminds us to hold dear a student’s right to learn by protecting them from distracting amplifiers.

Give D.C. kids--and parents and grandparents and teachers--a break: Support the "Noise Control Protection Amendment Act of 2008 (Bill 17-177).”

The final vote is on the council's June 3 legislative meeting agenda. Need help understanding what all these decibels in D.C. mean? Here's an easy interactive explanation from the Washington Post.

At how many decibels does a baby cry? How about a baby's coo?

I'm sure it depends on the baby.
