Turn those ice cream trucks off!

Finally, someone out there is thinking straight:
City Councilor Sal LaMattina said he has been repeatedly awakened late at night by the jangly jingle of one Frosty truck, the music accompanied by an amplified female voice screeching, “Hello,” and he will call for a hearing today on whether ice cream trucks should be forced to go back to tingling bells rather than bellowing tunes.
I don't think Councilor LaMattina is going far enough. Frankly, I think the trucks should be banned from making any noise at all. Perhaps the absolute worst thing about living in my previous home in Leominster was hearing that infernal "Music Box Dancer" every single night from Patriots' Day until the end of September.
