TAMPA Window-rattling, mind-frazzling car stereos are a top source of complaints to the Tampa Police Department.
And now that the Florida Legislature has declined again to deal with noisy car stereos statewide, Tampa and some other cities have decided to handle it on their own.
On Thursday, the City Council will get its first look at an ordinance that would outlaw any car-stereo noise that can be heard 50 feet or more from a vehicle. The ordinance will be modeled on a Sarasota law that took effect in April and carries a civil fine of $250 after a first warning. A third stop by police would cost the driver $500.
