Police response to excessive neighbourhood noise in Counties Manukau 

31 January 2023

A person made a report to Police about a driver playing loud music every night from speakers mounted on the roof of his car for several years. He complained to the Authority about Police inaction regarding this, despite them having the car’s number plate and address of the owner of the car.

The Authority asked Police to look into this matter and Police met with those who had access to the car. They served an outstanding demerit suspension notice on one of the people and also increased road policing patrols in the neighbourhood.
