Rubas Law Offices and Certified Criminal Trial Attorney Michael Rubas Represent Clients Charged with Noise Ordinance Violations
Most municipalities in New Jersey have codified local ordinances declaring that excessive sound is a serious hazard to public health, welfare, safety and the quality of life and that people have a right to an environment free from excessive sound. Municipal noise ordinances attempt to prevent excessive sound such as barking dogs, leaf blowers, construction equipment, loud parties and music, and unruly gatherings in both private (especially Shore rental houses) and public places.
Noise Ordinance Violations and The Law
When Attorney Michael Rubas defends you in Municipal Court, he takes the necessary legal actions to either dismiss, reduce or defeat the charges, or minimize the penalties associated with a traffic, disorderly persons, drug, or ordinance charge. When it is in your best interest, the Rubas law firm may plea bargain your charges. However, in so doing, Mr. Rubas will closely scrutinize and apprise you of the State’s case, and examine the best defenses possible before entering into a plea agreement. The Rubas Law Offices aggressive approach is calculated to raise all available defenses on your behalf.
While noise ordinances vary from municipality to municipality, most municipal codes prohibit individuals from causing, directly or indirectly, any loud noise which disturbs, injures or endangers the health, comfort, safety or welfare of others. For example, some municipalities may prohibit the use operate or use radio, television, or any other sound-producing instrument, device or apparatus in such a manner that will disturb the rest or repose of any person or persons in his, her or their place of abode or at any time with louder volume than is necessary for convenient hearing.
