If the noise is from somebody racing circles inside, blocking one of the entrances won't really help...
I think that they're trying to see who can get to the top of the circular ramp quickest. We'll see if it make a difference.

Update in the cars racing around, we haven't heard anything lately, but it does go in cycles of not hearing the noise for ages, then getting a few nights in a row of it.

My neighbourhood is very quiet at night but during the day you hear occasional cars passing by and the screaming kids at the nearby school. Some evenings where there is a football match at the secondary school (where they have LED floodlights) you hear players shouting commands and so forth

Mine is pretty quiet but you have the occasional punk driving through with no muffler or some 15" subs.  ::)

I never understood why people remove mufflers other than attention seeking. It's usually young guys that do it that have to show the world they have a license. Big deal, most of the population have their license. ::)

Boom cars aren't so common here (I've seen only two cars in my life, that have a subwoofer in their trunk, one of them belongs to a past tenant of my hostel), but there are people that operates Mizrachi music in their cars at full volume, but without any modification in their stereo system.
But all of these ATVs and the off-road motorbikes that raving my neighborhood are speeders, and I asked Kiryat Ata to put speed bumpers in my street, in order to discourage the ATM and motorbikes to rave the roads, as they would causes them to turn over and their drivers to being injured or being killed, if drive at high speed on a speed bumper, as well as damage to their vehicles.

Don't usually have any boom cars here. Once though I woke up late at night and heard one, and it was like it kept going back and forth because I kept hearing it. But it must have been out on the main road, because when I looked out the window I saw nothing.

Also Friday night I heard a rumbling and when I looked out I saw two ATVs going by at midnight.

The boom cars in my area congregate at the new WalMart shopping center near my house.You don't see the cars making the noise-they are there.If I can hear them from my place-neighbors too,the music is TOO LOUD-imagine what it is doing to the hearing of the people in the car!One neighbor has called the police or sheriff-and those say there is nothing they can do.I like the new WlMart but don't appreciate the noise those "patrons" cause.Feel WalMart should have their lot patrols inform those folks unless they have business at the WalMart-they are to move on.And if someone is in the car listening to itsd radio or sound system-it is to be turned down.My house is several blocks away from the WalMart!

I was thinking the definition of Boom Cars, was cars with loud custom exhausts. lol... I forgot that
it could be cars with loud music. If anything, THAT annoys me more than the exhaust systems

I guess I would be counter-culture in this regard then as I highly enjoy aftermarket exhaust systems and strongly dislike speed bumps. That being said, I like to hear my exhaust, but not blast the neighborhood with it if possible. I don't like speed bumps because they are hard on the suspension system and in my case there are a few around that my car can't go over because they made them too tall. It is also annoying to have to slow down for each one and crawl over it. In addition many cases they are almost moot as most people with SUVs (which seems like at least half the people) drive right over them without slowing down. Since modern SUVs have good suspension systems they don't even feel the bump. As for radios, I just like it to sound good even when I turn it up and I've never had a sub. They only time I've really done any engine revving is occasionally under a bridge because that sounds amazing with all the reverb.

589, oh trust me, I know exactly what you're talking about, because I also enjoy the aftermarket exhaust systems.
I really, really do. I also agree with the bridge and tunnel revving reverb... but the only time it starts to
annoy me is when it's over done. Over revving to rev limiter, and than just holding it there for a long time.
That actually makes me mad. No respect for anything at that point... even the car or bike. Revving late at night is also
something I don't agree with... even if it's my dream car or motorcycle.
I love hearing my bike with its new fitted Moto GP SP-Engineering slip on exhaust... but I don't want to blast
the neighborhood with the sound. No way... because I feel it to be disrespectful to do so.

Yep, I feel exactly the same way. I would also add that the only times I would rev under a bridge was if one of my friends was in/on their vehicle also with me. We would have fun revving at each other, but never excessively. I believe holding the engine on the limiter is no good unless you're at a drag strip and thats where its supposed to be while launching the car. Otherwise revving at strangers is weird and showy in most cases. I would rev at someone sitting at a green light for too long on my harley instead of the horn. A small blip or two is all most people need to realize their not paying attention and I feel its slightly more courteous than using the horn. Its VERY rare to use the horn down here and many natives (like myself) consider horn usage VERY rude/disrespectful outside of extenuating circumstances. I can count how many times I use the horn in a year on one hand.
