LETTERS: Enforce noise bylaws

Editor:

Spring is here. We look forward to warm, pleasant days in ‘My City By the Sea’. Except those of us whose ears are assaulted by the arrival of the bikers on their unmufflered hogs.

Why do we allow this behaviour on our water-view drive?

The noise laws are clear. We need the impetus to enforce them.  Should we allow unwelcome visitors to disturb the peaceful enjoyment of White Rock’s homes and beaches?

Now is the time to get the word out. Come to Marine Drive with your attention-seeking behaviour and you will be fined.

Mayor and council need to let our RCMP detachment know our need to have the rising volume of noise pollution turned down on the beachfront.

We have controlled the spewing of cigarette smoke in public places.

Let’s enforce the law against noise pollution, as it too is damaging to our health.

V. van de Wint, White Rock
