Letter: Loud noise hurts quality of life

I'm sure I don't have to tell people about the horrible noise here in Dalton.

It is up to our local government to stop public nuisances. We need a mayor and City Council that will address this problem.

Freedom and liberty are a beautiful thing. I support it. I even listen to pro-patriot radio shows and call myself a "Thomas Jefferson Liberal" because unlike many in this nation I'm anti-Communist and anti-fascist (something so-called anti-fascists have abandoned). I support speech for all who don't call for harm whether I politically agree with them or not. But any society must have common rules or it cannot survive.

Pursuit of happiness is in the Constitution. How can people be happy if they are rudely intruded upon by others' loud engines and radios all day long?

Loud music is OK, but if you can hear it so many miles up or down the highway or it's rattling another person's walls, that's public nuisance. Your liberties shouldn't have the right to trample my rights to peace. They should be warned first, then properly ticketed and fined for repeat offenders. Same with the loud engines.

People complain about the trains. That's temporary noise. I'm more concerned with the 24/7 noise of rude people driving in high gear with no reason. People have no respect these days.
