Issues: noise complaint
147-177 Maple St New Haven, CT 06511, USA
A family on my block allows their three young children (between the ages of 6 and 12) practically free reign of the streets at night. I have witnessed these kids throwing rocks at cars, fighting, yelling, and screaming obscenities at one another. Tonight they were outside in the middle of the road (which is a fairly busy street), in the dark, hitting each other with shovels and yelling "I'll kill you." Kids having fun is one thing, but these kids are out of hand.
Not only is this a noise issue, but I am worried that one of these kids is going to get hit by a car. People speed down our street all the time.
I don't want to be rude or to make enemies with my neighbors, but I've lived here for three years now and these kids just get worse and more violent with each other every summer. Is there anything I can do about this? I called in a noise complaint once, but the police never showed.

Last week the DOT undertook a massive clearcutting of mature trees that previously screened I-91 and the entrance and exit ramps in the Wooster Square area.
What were once embankments with trees blocking both the sites and sounds of the highways for the residences south and north of Wooster Square are now naked hills.
Needless to say this has drastically decreased the quality of life of those living near the highway.
Without the trees, the noise level has increase to the point where residents previously happy living near the highways are now having to wear earplugs to sleep.
While this might be necessary for the interchange reconstruction underway, this has had a significant and negative impact on Wooster Square and its residences.
I hope that the DOT realizes just how big an impact this has, and has plans to address this as construction continues, because right now it's a disaster.

The Owl's Nest Bar has bands/DJs alomost every night that play until 12:30 or 1 in the morning. There is supposedly a New Haven Noise Ordinance but it is not enforced. If you call the police they may send a cruiser but they never shut down the noise. Over the years there have been SO many complaints and nothing has been done. It's a shame because it really affects the neighborhood. Why haven't the authorities shut this place down or at least banned loud music???
Metro Red Line Bethesda, MD
As sent to Metro complaint desk today:
We've grown grudgingly accustomed to broken air conditioning, out-of-service escalators and derailments, but today Metro found a new way to torment its riders. Four times between the Bethesda and Dupont stops, the PA system in announcing the next stop let out a high-pitched, ear-piercing, deafening screech that sounded like metal on metal. Riders covered their ears from the shock, and one boy next to me, who appeared to be about 8, started putting his fingers in his ear for the duration of the ride after the 2nd or 3rd time. The driver, who must have heard the noise as we did, seemed oblivious. There was no explanation or apology, much less an attempt to fix the problem. How much longer will we have to deal with this never-ending string of problems on metro, even as you have raised the fares?

In the past month at least, has been a generator running all night, from approximately sundown until roughly 7:00 a.m. It is nerve wracking and sleep destroying. I cannot tell the location, but it is close to this location and relentless. (Off the grid? Growing operation?) Kindly investigate

The men living at this house are dealing drugs at all hours of the day and night. A large gang of kids and young adults often hangs around in front of the the property smoking pot, making noise, and intimidating passersby and neighbors.
