Noise curfew in Arizona is a set of regulations that limit the amount of noise that can be made in certain areas. These regulations, set by the state's Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), are designed to protect the peace and quiet of residential communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and other places where people need to be able to concentrate and relax. The ADEQ sets noise standards for residential communities, as well as for businesses and other areas. The noise standards are based on the type of noise being made, the time of day it is being made, and the location where it is being made.
For example, in residential communities, the ADEQ sets a maximum noise level of 55 decibels during the day and 45 decibels at night. This means that any noise that exceeds these levels is considered to be too loud and must be reduced or stopped. In addition to setting noise standards for residential communities, the ADEQ also sets noise standards for businesses and other areas. For example, in commercial areas, the ADEQ sets a maximum noise level of 65 decibels during the day and 55 decibels at night. This means that any noise that exceeds these levels must be reduced or stopped. The ADEQ also sets specific regulations for certain types of noises.
For instance, it is illegal to make any excessively loud or harsh sound from a car or other vehicle while it is not moving. It is also illegal to possess any animal or bird that causes frequent or prolonged noise that disturbs the comfort or rest of anyone nearby. Additionally, it is illegal to use any car or other vehicle that is out of repair, so loaded, or in such a way that it emits noisy and unnecessary squeaking, rattling, or other noises. The ADEQ also prohibits certain types of noises from being made in certain areas. For example, it is illegal to make any excessive noise on any street adjacent to any school, teaching institution, church or court while it is in session.
Additionally, it is illegal to make loud and excessive noises in connection with the loading or unloading of any vehicle or the opening and destruction of bales, boxes, boxes and containers. Finally, there are some exceptions to the noise curfew in Arizona. For example, air conditioning equipment, swimming pools and spas that operate in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications and are in adequate operating condition are exempt from the noise curfew. Additionally, flight of controlled aircraft models, navigation of model ships or racing of model cars with internal combustion engines used for recreational purposes are also exempt from the noise curfew.
