Shusshh! You're in K.G.

Shusshh! You're in K.G.

With King George County's new noise ordinance, a lot of citations will be issued for residents cutting grass and using Weed Eaters, leaf blowers, chainsaws, etc., that average 107-130 decibels ["K.G. aims to put a lid on noise," April 7].

Starting a four-wheeler or motorcycle will certainly be above 75 decibels; the average for these vehicles is 95-110 decibels.

If your rooster crows, it could be above 75 decibels.

And don't even consider doing any type of target practice, as that will certainly be at least 160-170 decibels.
