Hagerstown City Councilman Lewis C. Metzner wants signs posted to warn drivers about the city's noise ordinance.
Metzner said Tuesday he prefers to educate the public about the ordinance before city police attempt any noise ordinance stings.
Metzner's comments came after Councilman J. Wallace McClure suggested undercover officers hang out around the corner of East Franklin and North Potomac streets to issue citations to violators with loud boom boxes.
Officers don't need to go undercover for such an operation because many drivers are unaware of the law, said Metzner, a local attorney.
The ordinance went into effect last October.
The noise regulation applies 24 hours a day to anyone playing stereos, bass amplifiers, radios or horns, or making other sounds that a reasonable person would find excessively noisy.
