Aren’t car alarms so 80’s?
There is an anti-car alarm device...it's called a rock.I've used it twice in ten years.
I live across the street from this automobile. Yes, I concur with the sign: get your fucking alarm fixed. I had difficulty sleeping for two nights and working in the day. Who in the fuck parks their car on a residential block, and abandons it, leaving people like us, who pay a lot of money to live here, to contend with it? The sounds were deafening. I hope the duche bag/asswipe who parked it get a summons or has it towed. Fucking bullshit.
Wind chimes, car alarms... thanks DeBlasio!!!
actually calling 911 takes care of this annoyance. this was told me by the police precinct, so I used it and it works. they track down the owner through registration and bingo - problem silenced!
@mIs that "911" or "311"?
Call the police. It's illegal to have a car alarm keep going off.These alarms should be banned. They are so pointless that I would probably help someone if I saw them trying to steal a car with the alarm going off.- East Villager
If they steal the car, the alarm goes with it! See yah! lol
I am so amazed that comments mention police will take care of this issue. If this is true then maybe we should stop complaining so much about the gentrification or general improvement in the economic status of the East Village. This would never happen in the Bronx where I live.
Police don't actually fix this. The police were called by several nearby residents and a cop car was ultimately flagged down in the street. They said it wasn't their jurisdiction. On the phone, officers from the 9th precinct said they might get to do it and never did. The battery finally died after day three of the Great Seventh Avenue Car Alarm Saga.I'm certainly not saying it should be the job of police to take care of this -- but the idea that they will is a myth.
People like this usually know that their car alarm goes off all night -- so they park three blocks away from where they live so they don't have to hear it.
