Title: Neighbor has a diesel truck 4' from bedroom window
Post by: stefan on March 09, 2005, 05:34:33 AM
I have a neighbor who has both a very loud diesel pickup and a loud motercycle.  His single-car driveway is about 10' from my bedroom window, and if that wasn't close enough, he has been parking in the grass about 4' from my window.  



My house, his garage, and his house make a U, so it sounds like the vehicle is in the room with us.  My 2 year old daughter's bedroom window is about 10' from all this, still in the U.



This wouldn't be so bad if he didn't come home late and leave between 5-6 AM.  After complaining about the motercycle revving before DAWN only a few feet from my BED, he is only using his truck in the morning.  This is still enough to wake everyone up almost every day of the week.



The house is about 60 years old with vinyl siding with no fence.  Would it be best to try a window plug first, and if that doesn't work, what other options do we have?



Thank you!!

Stefan
