Oh FFS...

Why not mandate one hour of quiet time along with this ludicrous nonsense?

I would approve a law allowing hand grenades to be deposited in the trucks playing said music.  First time offenders may exit the truck.

I wouldn't mind the Ice Cream Truck music where I am if, at the end of the song, the speaker didn't blare "Hello?"

Doo doo doo doo, doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo...

Hello?

Hello?

Hello?

Jesus, it's enough already.

Good, in my old neighborhood an Ice cream truck would park by the neighborhood pool all afternoon with the music on, I don't mind the drive by but shut it off when you are parked.

/The ice cream truck that visits my current neighborhood comes year round even when it is 40 degrees out and raining.  They may be selling more than Ice Cream

Absolutely. The driver wanting to make a living does not entitle him to disturb my peace and quiet any more than I'd be entitled to dress up like Chester the Molester and leer at his customers, scaring them off.

This is likely a generational issue, with the elderly (no kids) objecting to the influx of the young, diverse kids running to trucks blasting La Cucaracha.
Every since they tore down "Acres of Books," I have no reason to drive to Long Beach.  It's changed dramatically since Spencer Tracy dropped $350K from the fire escape.

Son -- Here comes the ice cream truck Dad.
Me -- Yeah. You here that music?
Son -- Yep
Me -- Well they play the music when they are out of ice cream. So you don't get too excited and run to the curb.

Never heard an ice cream truck play Turkey in the Straw.

It's always The Entertainer over here.

Actually, noise abatement is never a bad thing. If only I could convince restaurants that they don't need to play the muzak louder when 30 of us
are trying to converse.

Some people work third shift and don't share your enthusiasm.

Some people have infants that are light sleepers and don't share your enthusiasm.

Some people buy their ice cream at a grocery store, paying far less. They don't share your enthusiasm.

Some people like tranquillity and don't share your enthusiasm.

None of them are necessarily deadbeats.

Want a burrito? Get off you ass and go to 7-11 rather than wishing someone would disturb all of your neighbors in order to make it more convenient for you.

You sound like a Vegan who is angry that their child cries so much because they're abusing it through poor nutrition.

Learn a better trade so that you can get a job with regular hours that allows you to be a normal member of society, ya creepy vampire. Even homeless people sleep at night.

Bub Rub agrees.

I'm on board with the damn ice cream truck being the worst of the three in the real world. Sure it sounds nice to say your going to stop mistreatment of homeless people but in in the real world people are jerks and it's hard to stop human nature. Far easier to stop the annoying ice cream truck from making it's racket.

Those trucks with "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" and the car horn honking effects make me want to go on a rampage.

The way I look at it, music is ice cream trucks' way of advertising. By blaring their music at top volume, they are blasting advertising into my house without my consent. It's like a particularly annoying radio commercial that you can't switch off.

It's bad enough listening to all the soccer moms honking their car horns every time they lock and unlock the car.

/ and dogs barking, banda music parties. etc. etc.
// all of this is why I moved to a little more rural neighborhood
 
2013-07-06 06:55:13 PM
SoCal ice cream trucks are evil monsters. These are not the trucks of your youth. They don't stop for five minutes, then move on. They park for hours with the music blaring. Sometimes two on one block. Eventually, they drive 'round the other side of the block, and continue blasting. I can still hear them from a block away.

To make matters worse, they've added drum machine, and other samples. So now it's all <turkey in the straw>< clap clap><turkey in the straw><HELLO!!><turkey in the straw>
 
2013-07-06 06:58:02 PM
Don't they understand? If you stop the Ice Cream Man's music, we'll be overrun by the demon children in no time.

Of which you are neither of the 3, and have independent made poor life choices to be working graveyard shift. And it is Graveyard, not "3rd shift". So you can stop trying to hide your blue collar shame.

Besides, shouldn't you be in bed right now? I want donuts tomorrow morning, and you need your rest to get to work in time for me.

I have no problems with ice cream truck music.  I live in an apartment complex in the middle of a row of apartment complexes, so the ice cream truck comes by frequently.  Never bothers me.  Part of it is that as a former small business owner, I understand the need to advertise.  If the city that I live in banned ice cream truck music, then he'd end up wasting his time coming into this area as the kids wouldn't know he was here.  This is an area with a lot of kids, so it's an area that ice cream trucks definitely want to sell in.  Only having the one leads me to think that they operate in territories.

Two men were arrested for having marijuana by El Paso County Sheriff's deputies after the ice cream truck they were riding in was pulled over.
