45 decibels

Postby Professor_Leakey » Sun Jan 26, 2014 8:17 am

i found this article very worrisome. 45 decibels is described as normal conversation at 3 feet. it is nothing. so pretty much you cant call out to your dog to come in anytime before 7am in Hingham, if this is to pass, let alone all the other potential ramifications...scary

So I hope all the snow plow guys band together during a storm in the middle of the nite and don't run, along with sanders, I hope when tree crews/line crews are needed in the middle of the nite to clear power lines those yuppies don't get power or heat till the next morning... I feel for all who have to put up with that crap... you pay taxes for what so you can be dictated how to live in that town ... give me a break... theirs more freedom in jail... compared to what these folks put up with... :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: that means a workin man cant get up and get his crews movin till after 7 .... joke

Professor you should be scared

im not sure of the wording of the proposal, but they do mention considerations made for snow removal crews. still, i would like to know more about the details, if anybody knows anything. 55 decibels during the daytime is very fair, wouldnt you say? :sarcmark:

:eek:

Hold up a sec, it's just a proposal. I personally don't think this will have any shot of passing, DPW, hingham light, hingham T&P police/fire would be breaking it every hour of everyday. It just won't work, no one could work in hingham contractors, landscapers, anyone doing manual labor.

Jesus I went deaf last year and lost all of my hearing, had surgery to restore my hearing. Anything above 70 db's is loud to me but you don't see me complaining, my answer is earplugs, and earmuffs.but boy is it nice to hear traffic lawnmowers sirens planes you name it, don't pass up your hearing I learned it the hard way

i cannot imagine anything like this ever actually passing...it is ludicrous. when i first saw it i thought it seemed like an article on the onion...but the fact that it could even come up for a vote is insane.

Even more insane is the town is brining in a specialist to do research..... Wonder how much this dumb study is going to cost the tax payer. Hingham was nice 50-60 years ago, nothing like it is now

"Construction noise is not permitted from 7 p.m. to 6:59 a.m., and can only be louder than the noise specifications for no more than 15 minutes in any 60-minute period."
Are the police going to sit around for an hour and time the noise? Will every officer be issued a meter to measure the sound level?

It was a great country town to grow up in 30 years ago. Now its overrun with NJ born yuppies with their Cadillac Escalade XXXXL, UGG boots and Prozac.

F that noise. (literally).

The bottom line its a waste of time and tax payer money period... I guaruntee that study will be few thousand dollars... then the burden on police and officials to enforce such crap... again more money and time used on resources that could be better served... then the court issues... becuase really whos going to enforce it... its going to be one persons word against another...

So a couple goes to dinner, on a street legal motorcycle on a summer nite. they leave the resuraunt at 9;15 bike is above the decible range your telling me your going to ticket them, when they just supported a local business... this is just plan crap...

and yes their are exceptions to this crap -- its funny how those exceptions work in the residants favor IE public service -- becuase the tax payer needs them... but lets make it hard for everyone else!!! PS I work in public governemnt here in mass for a large municipalty i speak with experiance -- God bless us all ....


God! duck season needs to be longer Im bored!!! first season out and addicted

by the way the phone rang ---- :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: arrest me

I wonder if this has to do with keeping people from hunting off the beach. A friend from Quincy said he saw a few guys and a couple youths dropping geese from that bathing beach a couple weeks ago. :no:

Quincy or Hingham?
