      Thank you, this is a good point.   It may not even reach the MP.   Even for the meet the people session, I was told by people who went for it that the kakia always there to block people from approaching the MP.

      You are back here again.     I was told by police before, the time is 10.30 pm onwards and this is also the time the lights at the playground and other sports facilities in HDB areas are switched off.

      It is not the time, it is the attitude of the police.

      imagine you are kindergarten teacher. got a child A who keep disturbing child B.

      scenario 1: 

      B: teacher teacher! A keeps poking me in the arm!

      teacher: A, be nice and don't disturb B.

      teacher goes back teaching, A disturbs B, cycle continues.

      B feels he has no choice but to summon batman. batman solve the problem, everyone wins.

      scenario 2:

      B: A, can you please don't disturb me? It is affecting my sleep.

      A: Sorry, I will not do it again.

      B cuts down on the number of times he disturb A, but still does it from time to time. A understands that getting disturbed is part of life as a student in a class, and try to accomodate A.

    • If you report to your NPC, make sure to exaggerate the incident like this

      "I heard a girl screaming loudly and the guy is shouting he is going to kill her! I think something is going to happen! Come help!" ... or something like that

      That will escalate the simple late night loud noise scenario to a someone is going to kill somebody scenario and I am sure the officer will be more than willing to investigate icon_lol.gif

      Trust me it works

    • A friend of mine once had to wait and chase the Phantom Wong Kan Seng for a long long time before WKS lended his precious ears (this was way back before the toilet break)

    • Your MPs has got this mentality where by if you keep being persistent with your complaint then the problem must be genuine otherwise just thow it out the window.

    • You can call for Police, but as been said earlier, how long they take to arrive will depend on the night. They might be engaged in other cases around the area, or there may be plenty of other noise pollution cases.

      Anyway, besides calling for Police, you can also make a Police report. Tell them that you would like them to step in and help in this matter. However, the Police will require your assistance to lay a complaint with the Magistrate at the Subordinate Courts due to the nature of noise pollution offences. One the file is created, the situation will be monitored on a regular basis between the Police and the Courts.

      Another avenue you can go by is by the community mediation centre [CMC]. You can either enquire with them, or ask the Police about the nearest CMC to your house. Once you get the details of this CMC, you can let them know of this matter, and they will see what they can do for you. They will in touch with you, as well as the other party.

      Yet another avenue for expression will be the MP. You can write in, or tell him when he does his house visits, or meet him for his weekly meet-the-people sessions.

      There are many ways to go about the situation. Hope this helps.

    • meet the MP day is a good way to meet MPs.

    • people use to settle problems with neighbors by talking with them, and call the police when the problem gets out of hand. now, the people will not hesistate to summon batman to solve the crimes of noise pollution.

    • Hmmm, i do not have neighbours who quarrel loudly, but i do have people living in the other end of the block who seems tohave quarreled so badly, or the person who called the police has a greatstrory telling skills, that, more than 4 police car arrived!

      I bet the person who called might have exegeratted 20 times

      in the end nothing happened and all went back

       

      OT: What happens if neighbours blast their speakers loud? I dun mean karaoke or wad, just plain songs. Maybe not the full song, but just the bass. The bass is those very irritating kind

      If it is excessively noisy, and repeatedly noisy [until plenty of calls come in or in spite of repeated warnings], the Police are empowered to seize the item causing the noise.

      need advice ah...

      My neighbours from time to time quarrel loud loud at home, with their door open.  It's some kind of sibling fights (between one elder bro in his NS and one younger sis still in Sec Sch).  Actually, not really from time to time.  It's like once a week, machiam like got quota to meet one, every week must make noise.  When they quarrel, they should very very loud.  I usually have my door closed and windows shut cuz I now live in a corridor unit and need privacy. 

      A few nights ago was really bad!  I was in the living room watching TV, as usual with my doors and windows shut.  The bro shouted very loudly this time (usually, it's the sister that shouts louder) and suddenly I heard a very very loud bang, followed by a vibration on my floor, machiam like earthquake.  It was past 10 pm liao leh!!! 

      In situation like this, can I call police ah?

       


      they won't care, don't bother. I get disturbed by idiotic basketball "players" (more like delinquents) in wee hours of the morning (think 2 am playing basketball and swearing and waking up the entire neighbourhood). I called the police. they didnt even come moral of the story - decent employed taxpayers get robbed of their sleep by dumb non-contributing delinquents, and the govt/police don't give a shit about that. they should remember who issues their paycheck.

      Since the Police are taxpayers too, I suppose they issue their own paychecks then.

      I think unless you can tell them you are 'who who who'... Or 'who's who's who'.... Then they be more bother lah.... Otherwise... Depends on your luck one... Some really quite sincere in their job and helping you out... Others simply bochap..

      I know it works... But you might be charged for filing a false complaint.. This might be a serious offence because there might be others who is more in need of help at the same point of time....
