I have a neighbor who moved across the street almost 2 months ago, and the son is always playing his music friggen loud out of his Suburban and it's pissing me off to the point where I want to smash in his windows and rip his speakers out. This kid plays his music loud outside EVERYDAY from 3p to 1a, I'm not making this up. If anyone knows about any such law please tell me so I can file a complaint before I smash in his windows.

Not sure of any specific ordinances, but just call the non-emergency police number and ask them to go by. See what happens and take it from there. Have you tried talking to the neighbor's father? What about writing an anonymous letter and mailing it?

My other neighbors have already done that, it hasn't worked. The son actually plays it louder now than he did last week.

Obviously if there are parents, they aren't around or they're too afraid of their own child to do anything. Keep calling the police. I really have no other advice.

I feel your pain.

We live in Converse. We had neighbors who turned up the volume so we could all enjoy the thudding want to rip your ears off base of their stereo. I called the Bexar County Sheriff non emergency number and was told there is no noise ordinance. If you want to make a complaint about disturbing the peace they can do that. It won't be anonymous.

Do you have a HOA?

Good luck!

Try this, first go calmly talk to him and ask him to please turn the volume down so all of his neighbors don't have to listen to his music. If that doesn't work. Call city hall and ask if there is a city ordinence against spraying weed killer on your lawn. If not, go and get some really strong weed killer. Wait until there is a strong wind blowing from your property line onto his lawn. Stand on your property line and spray in the air letting it blow onto his yard. You can't help which way the wind blows can you just like he can't help which way sound waves travel. Be careful not to accually step onto his property. If that doesn't work start putting up flyers in specific areas advertizing the fact that there is an expensive car stereo in a suburban at his address maybe someone will steal it.

Good luck!

I called the SA Police non-emergency number, (210)207-7273, on a neighbor who used to have monthly patio parties late at night. They came out within 1/2 hour, but by that time they had turned in. I think the officer left a note on their door. They never did it again. The operator told me the call is anonymous.

My HOA told me they don't get involved in inter-neighbor issues. I'm not sure if they are all like that.

Our HOA doesn't do anything but complain when someone plants a tree in their yard without their permission to do so.

Default Noise Ordinance

There is no ordinance but we just called and were told that if you have a Sheriff come to your house, you can file a complaint and then they can go check it out and issue a ticket - $155 fine - I thought it was so wierd that you can't just fine them if a complaint is lodged since there is a fine in the books but this was the only way. Our neighbor has a dj and all going right now and it is after midnight with work for me in the morning. We'll see how long it takes for the sheriff to show up and something to be done.
