Shingle Springs, CA asked in Land Use & Zoning for California

Q: What is stopping me from sharing about a private nuisance issue on social media.

Neighbors are illegally dismantling autos and trucks day and night. And we are trapped with loud drive by's of people helping to hide dismantling sound. Would I get in trouble if I share these facts on social media???

A: Wow, Shingle Springs and San Raphael are having major outbreaks of bootleg auto dismantlers operating under zoning variances in residential neighborhoods. You need to hire a Land Use attorney to look into getting you an injunction against this, because this is the 4th post on this subject. As for outing them on social media, perhaps you should examine your goal for such an action, it isn't going to quiet the neighborhood at night. You have a city council, and a County Board of Supervisors, start making some noise with them, if the other agencies won't help. Speak to the police about this nighttime disturbance. If a construction firm was operating heavy machinery at night and disturbing the neighborhood, you could get some relief, why not with this? Best of luck.
