Bill Fining ‘Boom Car’ Drivers for Noise Violations Signed Into Law

Assemblyman Rob Clifton’s bill helping police put the brakes on ‘boom’ cars and parties was signed into law.

“It’s time to give law enforcement the ability to cite the audible assaults resulting from cars equipped with stereo systems designed for concert arenas,” Clifton (R-Monmouth) said. “Property taxpayers have literally been shaken out of bed while their windows rattle as drivers of tricked-out cars continue to organize unauthorized gatherings.”

New Jersey residents, especially those living next to large bodies of water like the Delaware or Hudson rivers, have complained that boom parties are affecting their quality of life and interfering with their ability to sleep while music vibrates through their homes.

The measure fines drivers of cars considered ‘boom boxes on wheels’ for violating New Jersey’s Noise Control Act. First-time offenders will be subject to a fine of $250 to $500, a second offense will result in a fine of $500 to $750, and a third offense could result in a fine of $750 to $1,000 plus two motor vehicle points.

“This law puts the brakes on boom car parties by sending a loud message that New Jersey will not tolerate reckless noise levels emanating from obnoxious passenger vehicles,” Clifton said.

  1. Maybe we could do something with all those low-lifes out there that cant resist on not disturbing our peace and quiet at night and on the weekends. These parties keep my kids up at night and makes my whole house shake. I call the Police sometimes, but more needs to be done. We must ticket these guys until they are broke and cant afford musicians!!
