I am glad the U-B printed the fireworks laws for the Fourth of July holiday. However, I am concerned people who do not care about the law will either not read it or will ignore it.
For the past several years, the violations have gotten worse. I can only think this is because the violators know the law is not enforced. What are law-abiding people to do when they observe that it is not being enforced?
It does not seem to do any good to report it.
Obviously, people who do not abide by the law have no consideration for their neighbors. I live in a neighborhood where there are several of these people and when they all get going there are the loud booms about every five minutes — and this goes on for hours. It does not end at midnight.
So, I am appealing to the police to enforce the law and I hope other people will report violations as I intend to do.
