    In New York there's been a huge crack down on noise levels. Apparently there's too much noise so Mayor Bloomberg (or whatever his name is) has put a limit on how much dogs can bark - 10 mins during the day and 5 at night! Other proposals include getting workers at building sites to put blankets over noisy machinery, and preventing ice-cream vans from playing music!!! What are your thoughts on this? Personally I think it's a bit stupid!

    How are you going to stop a dog barking more than a certain time? And who's going to be timing to check up on it? Those are really stupid yes.

    When you go down wall street there are loads of signs warning that you can be fined thousands of dollars for honking your horn on wall street

    Are they going to put a time limit on how long a baby can cry?
    Or force people to ride around on bikes, as cars are too noisy?
    If the mayor has such a big issue with it, i suggest a pair of earplugs.

    I heard that from somewhere, but its hardly cruel compared to some of the stuff he could have been doing.

    I've only been here since feb too! (did you mean 'accepted'?). I feel like a bit of an outsider but it doesn't bother me all that much. I like this forum because I know I can say what I really think and won't get a *******ing off everybody for it! Everyone on here seems quite mature and tolerant of opposing views. it's nice.
