YAKIMA, Wash.-Warmer weather means more people are spending their time outside. But if you're too loud you could receive a visit from the Yakima Police.
Yakima Police are enforcing a noise ordinance. They say they receive noise complaints every weekend.
According to the Yakima Police Department, if a complaint is filed against you they will warn you on their first visit to your home. If they receive another complaint they will give you a citation. And if they return for a third time it is most likely you will be arrested.
A number of noises apply under the ordinance including car mufflers and stereos. If a noise disturbs your neighbors then you can get a ticket.
