    More Than 1,000 Noise Complaints Lodged Against NYC Ice Cream Trucks: Report

    New York City residents have filed more than 1,000 noise complaints about jingles playing from ice cream trucks so far this year, according to the New York Post.

    The Post reports that just one ice cream truck has been cited for playing music too loudly this year.

    The news came as Department of Environmental Protection said that ice cream trucks shouldn't be able to play music between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.

    Most of the claims came from residents in the Bronx and Brooklyn, according to the Post.

    City Councilman Daniel Dromm of Queens told the Post he wants to amend city codes to make it easier for inspectors to ticket noisy ice cream trucks.

    Currently, summonses can only be issued if drivers are caught in the act violating city noise ordinances.
