Mayor Bloomberg vetoes bill to ban the sale of certain car alarms
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has vetoed a bill that would have banned the sale of certain car alarms in the Bronx and city.
The bill, which was passed last month by the City Council, was aimed at reducing noise citywide. Alarms that would have been banned included ones that sound for more than three minutes and those that are motion sensitive.
Mayor Bloomberg argued that the car alarm legislation was flawed because it wouldn't have affected alarms installed by manufacturers. He also felt the city's noise code already regulates car alarms.
