New Editorial: NOISE!!!

It won’t come as news to you that this past spring, summer and fall were the loudest, most annoying and irritating in recent history. In our over 40 years of living in Bellport, we’ve never experienced anything like the blatant disregard for others that we experienced this year. High performance cars, pickup trucks and motorcycles are with us to stay, but they don’t have to be deafeningly loud. It’s as if the drivers are screaming at us, “Hey, look at me. I’m inadequate so I’ll make my vehicle as loud as I can so the world will notice me,” it’s enough already. Well, Albany was listening, how couldn’t they, and Governor Hochul recently passed legislation to help. Click here for more information.
