Tennessee Police to Ticket for Loud Music in Cars


Murfreesboro police will be cracking down on drivers who like to pump up the volume in their cars.

Police said with spring just around the corner, many people like to blast their car stereos. Officers in unmarked cars will be on the lookout and listening for people who violate the city's noise ordinance.

"Basically, here in Murfreesboro, if you have your stereo up so loud that someone else can hear it in their car with their windows rolled up or where they can hear it across property lines, it's too loud, and you could be cited in city court," said Officer Kyle Evans of the Murfreesboro Police Department.

Violators will be given a $116 ticket. After court costs, that could be about $150.
