Also, We Don't Like Those Hubcaps


Buffalo's city council is mulling a ban on after-market car stereos because some drivers play their music too loud. Never mind that you can do that even with sound systems that come pre-installed, or that car owners control their own volume knobs and do not necessarily turn them all the way up, any more than they drive at maximum speed everywhere they go. Or that Buffalo already has legal limits on noise, regardless of whether it comes from a standard or customized stereo. The proposed ordinance also raises some practical issues. "What are you going to do?" asks the head of a car modification trade association that promises to challenge the ban if it's adopted. "Post large signs at all entrances to the city saying, 'Don't come here if you have a certain kind of stereo in your car?'"
