    Default Making noise complaints to the police...do/would you?

    If someone in your neighbourhood, who you do not know personally, throws a wild party complete with ridiculously loud music (I'm talking window vibrating doof doof music) - do you call the police to make a noise complaint?

    Or do you try and ignore it, hoping they will slow it down by a reasonable hour and that they won't wake your kids?

    I'm just curious what others do.

    For a once off I wouldn't do anything, but regular parties I would.

    Ignore it. But it can depend on where you live. We used to live in the inner city in Melbourne and we just grew used to it. Most people are pretty reasonable at the end of the day.

    However until recently the house next door to ours was tenanted by backpackers who would come home at 4 am and party hard and wake us up. We didn't complain but I did encourage the kids to play very loudly down that side of the yard the next day when I knew they would be hungover like dogs.

    Anything after 11pm that rattles my windows will indeed get a noise complaint and I have no hesitations in doing so. Up until then I don't care. On days like Xmas and New Years I don't though I feel like it would be a mood holiday killer. I don't know lol

    Depends on how often and when...

    If its daily at night then yep after awhile if probably of had a gut full and report..especially if its impacting on my kids and waking them.

    If It's during the daytime I don't think there's much you can do ? But I'm not certain.. My train of thought daylight hrs are for noise making night time is for shut up time.. Lol that could just be my personal laws though! Lol

    Last night I called the police 3 times on my neighbour. It was the first time he has had a party like that since we moved in (3 years ago) but there's no way I was allowing it because it was right outside my bedroom window and I'd had enough by 11, then 12, then 2am.
    He kept turning the music off for an hour, then back on, so when the police went past they heard nothing. It was sooooo frustrating!

    I've reported before and I've not reported - I regretted not reporting because I was exhausted. If it's a regular thing then I would definitely report.

    For a once off I wouldn't report unless it was still going past midnight or people were spilling into my yard or the street.
