Letter: Crack down on noisy cars

Now that the rain has stopped for the season, the 10-year-old boys trapped in men’s bodies have returned to Southeast 164th Avenue and surrounding environs with their little vroom-vrooms. Most days, usually starting in the afternoon and continuing well into the late night, these children disguised as adults drive all around in their little cars, purposely modified to make as much noise as possible, disturbing every living thing that has ears for miles.

Is there nothing that can be done about this antisocial and incredibly obnoxious childish behavior? These are neglected man-children who obviously did not get enough attention from their parent(s) during their younger years. Perhaps the attention they crave could come from the Vancouver Police Department in the form of a traffic stop and citation for disturbing the peace?

Enough is really enough. A few maladjusted adolescents should not continue to be allowed to cause such disruption for the entire populous on such a regular basis.
