I’ve been living near the LIE since it was built and have heard the sounds of cars, trucks, emergency sirens and the airplanes that use the highway as an approach to the airport. In the last two years there’s a new sound even more disturbing, that is the sound of small fast cars with mufflers that send out a series of explosions, some sounding like a bomb and some like a series of gun shots. These morons who drive these cars live in our neighborhood; how can they think this a cool thing? This is a form of terrorism and nowhere do I see our elected officials and the police department addressing this problem. Are the mufflers legal in NYS, who sells them, how do these cars pass yearly inspection and what is being done by the politicians and the police?
