Living in Langford near Veterans Memorial Parkway is the place to be if you are into speed and noise.
The races start as early as 9 a.m. on Saturdays and last until dark. They are accompanied by the booming, ear shattering racket of car sound systems.
It gets worse when the traffic jam starts as then they are idling out front, and we get to hear the assortments of very loud engine noise created by the lack of proper equipment. Sunday is much the same.
I have found that by leaving the area for most of the day, I miss most of the unwanted entertainment.
Apparently there is a benefit, it keeps the taxes down.
Can you imagine what would happen if a real estate person was trying to show the house with this going on?
