In Sturgis South Dakota, Noise is an issue that that town is trying to deal with. According to the article in the Magic Valley News the towns bar owners have worked with city council to craft noise legislation surrounding the famous Black Hills Rally.
• Disruptive noise or use of sound equipment in public or outside between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.
• Operating construction equipment between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
• Operating sound equipment in a vehicle causing any disruptive noise or a vibration 20 feet from the vehicle.
If the rest of us complain about the noise of the motorcycle rally, imagine what it’s like for yearlong Sturgis residents. The proposed ordinance is in response to Sturgis residents who want the party that is the rally to tone it down in the early morning hours. End Quote
