Many people live in neighborhoods that are polluted with incredibly loud noise. Some of this noise, is from things like elevated trains, garbage pickup trucks as well as delivery trucks. It is difficult to get away from these noises although they can, and should be mitigated. Then we have other noises that can have an adverse effect on our health and are preventable if certain agencies took the iniciative to stop them. When we are bombarded with noise from neighbors who bring their stereo systems out to the street to celebrate a party, or the businesses that decide that after work and during work hours they will blast their sound systems so high that poeple have to close their windows and bring up the volume of their TV's if they are watching, there is a problem. When folks with powerful stereos in their cars park in your block and play music so loud you can't think, there is a problem. I have those issues in the place I live in. I can't sleep a full night without a  car playing such loud music as they pass by that their car trunck rattles. I get this six or seven times a night. I'm sure many of you do too. Something must be done and I am beginning by exposing the elected officials who have done absolutely nothing to assist us. We will also discuss the new ways that a Bronx cable company is mistreating it's costumers by making them do the work a tech should do, charging for visits and asking you to buy their insurance to maintain their equipment.
