In response to Greg Hiscott (“Enforce the noise laws,” April 7), you would think the Glendale police would cite violations of the vehicle codes, but it seems that doesn’t happen unless there is a special grant allowed for them to actually enforce the law (i.e. cell phone violations).
Noise is a large issue that should be addressed, but it goes unheeded by police.
Unfortunately, I live on Fern Lane, where the regional Sports Complex is located. We have a situation here that we have been trying to live with since the complex’s opening: the 300% increase in traffic noise, with loud stereos and mufflers, speeding and litter.
Fern Lane has also become a major access road for public works vehicles — more noise, diesel smell and dust.
We have not been successful in having Glendale police respond to these issues. So, Mr. Hiscott, you can consider yourself fortunate that you live in La Cañada Flintridge and at least do not have to contend with all the noise issues that we have been living with for the last five years in the absence of adequate police enforcement.
