Is there anything I can do about car noise?
I'm not sure if there's an answer to this question.
I've been living in my apartment for about two years (just signed on for another year) and have had no real problems with noise in the parking lot. I mean, sure, you're going to hear people start up their cars or maybe even the door ajar chime or something like that. No big deal.
But recently, there is a neighbor (I'm not sure he even lives in my building) who's car seems to be in dire need of a muffler. EVERY morning at 6AM, I am awakened when he starts the car. I swear the damn thing sounds like it's about to die as the motor constantly sputters so he keeps revving the engine allegedly to prevent that from happening.
Not sure if it matters, but the vehicle seems to be a Firebird Trans-Am and I'm not sure if his car is truly in need of maintenance or he's one of those....jerks who believes the louder the car, the cooler he is and this is just some asinine "modification."
Anyway, I have not gone to management, yet, because I'm not sure if there is really anything I can do.
