car alarms and beeps: what boards and owners can do about the noise - simple car alarm
Question: I have been working on and off on my homeowner association board for over 15 years.
We have developed more than 40 town houses. -
Almost every unit has more than one car. -
Our noise problem is getting worse and worse.
The angry homeowner wrote to the board asking for action against the car alarm that kept going day and night.
In order to start and deactivate some alarms, including opening and closing doors and suitcases, the owner must press the horn button.
Some owners have a backup beep system that makes a loud beep every time a vehicle is backed up.
What can we do to stop this unnecessary noise?
If this noise is not common, will the rules on this noise be different?
A: If car alarms are frequently activated by users, or set to a level that is easy to turn off, these owners may be accused of interfering with the quiet enjoyment of other owners.

Depending on the scope of the issue, the small claims court may file a lawsuit against the owner and the board of directors at any time.
