GET YOUR TRUCK FIXED!!!

City of Vancouver Noise Bylaw Violation by Elgin Sanitation Truck 702 57 at 8am 20081208 with 106 DB as measured and seen on the video!!! This extremely noisy street cleaning truck was loud enough to wake me with massive vibrations and loud sounds inside! So I grabbed my camera and sound meter and you can see the rest. It turns out that I stand corrected with decibels doubling with every ten (10) increase [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel]. The street cleaning truck is in violation of Vancouver City Bylaw 9344 [http://vancouver.ca/engsvcs/projects/...]. It's the loudest street cleaning vehicle I've ever heard in my life. http://vancouver.ca/engsvcs/projects/.... The driver is actually at risk of hearing impairment and could sue the city or it's contractor who was working for the city.

The tow truck was quiet by comparison coming in at 65 to 85 decibels at most but usually around 70. The tow truck driver was actually nice, but the street cleaning truck driver was clearly "put out" by my presence and complaint against his noisy truck.
