Gen­er­at­ing too much ur­ban noise

Talk of the Town - - Opinion -

When the lights go out, the generators come on in my “hood”: to the front of me, to the back of me and now it seems – to the side of me.

Surely there is a mu­nic­i­pal by-law which con­trols the use of generators in ur­ban ar­eas and pre­scribes ap­pro­pri­ate muf­fling from read­ers, or point­ers to ap­pli­ca­ble leg­is­la­tion, will be much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Po­lite re­quests to neigh­bours have had lit­tle ef­fect. It is un­fair to ex­pect me to en­dure the in­fer­nal roar jump­ing my bound­ary, un­til such time that Eskom sorts it­self out.
