Description

The residents at 253 W Haines street drive a commercial vehicle with a very loud backup beeper.

Between the hours of 7am and 12am, 7days a week, this vehicle generates 97db of beeping noise, less than 10feet from residential housing. Furthermore the vehicle is often left in reverse for extended periods of time.

Philadelphia noise code states:

"10-401. Legislative Findings. (1) The City Council of the City of Philadelphia finds: (a) that noise and excessive vibration degrade the environment of the City to a degree which: (.1) is harmful and detrimental to the health, welfare and safety of its inhabitants; (.2) interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life, property and recreation and with the conduct and operation of business and industry; and (.3) causes nuisances;"

It its not fair that law-abiding citizens are unable to enjoy any peace and quiet while resting at home.
