Idahoans Irate! It’s Illegal To Do THIS In Boise After 11 p.m.
It's tough trying to have a good time in 2023. The cost of living in Boise is at an all-time high. Every day it feels like we're on the brink of World War III. Political turmoil is on TV 24/7. Is it too much to ask to simply have a desire for a little fun this day in age?
Well, yes. Yes it is. If you enjoy partying, that is.
We did some digging on some of Boise's official rules, regulations and laws, and we found one that stuck out like a sore thumb:
Between the hours of eleven o'clock (11:00) P.M. one day and six o'clock (6:00) A.M. the next day, it shall be unlawful for any person or business to make, cause, or allow loud or offensive noise by means ofvoice, musical instrument, hom, radio, loudspeaker, automobile, machinery, other sound amplifying equipment, domesticated animals, or any other means which disturbs the peace, quiet, and comfort ofany reasonable person ofnormal sensitiveness residing in the area.
That's correct. You are forbidden from producing any kind of loud noise after 11 p.m. in Boise. Having a house party? Turn the music down. Working on the engine of your classic sports car? Not at night you're not.
Of course there are a few exceptions to the rule, such as emergency response vehicles, aircraft, and road equipment. Which 99.9% of us don't own or operate, so that isn't much help.
What do you think? Is a noise ordinance in Boise a good idea? Do you enjoy the peace and quiet after 11 p.m., or are you a night owl who likes it turned up to 11 all the time? Let's connect and find out.
