A car alarm has been going off in close proximity to our apartment for at least half an hour.  This follows 2-4 other alarms earlier today.  I asked Shane if maybe someone in our building has decided to not use an alarm clock and just be woken up by their car.  It certainly seems like it, given the frequency with which we hear car alarms in the morning.

I know where we live is kind of ghetto, but it’s not THAT bad, right?

  1. i think that’s the definition of ghetto. Last summer we had a lovely person come to pickup their work mate EVERY day between 5 and 5:30 am. How did they signal their arrival? By honking really loud several times of course.

  2. More car alarm info than you will ever need to know, courtesy of your Anti-Noise Friend. 😉

    Aaron Freeman in particular is well-known for anti-car alarm work. He got a write-up in The New Yorker a couple of years ago and New York City is very close to adopting a ban on audible car alarms. here’s THAT site:

    BUT what I like to do with car alarms is post this on the windshields (it beat smashing up the cars with bats which is what they used to do when I lived in Brooklyn in the late ’90s: the police casually looked the other way. Of course, that was when they’d go off for 12 hours straight.):
