Yes, my neighbors (of many ethnic groups) are quite cooperative about such
things. But the people driving through the neighborhood tend to be
completely uncooperative. And the police around here will NOT do anything
based on a complaint with a license number. If they don't hear it
themselves, they won't follow up.

BTW, the first time that I heard one of them, I thought that it was a bad
crankshaft main bearing - still don't know why somebody would WANT that
volume anywhere near themselves.
