No "hooting" after 9:30pm

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - October 23, 2008

At least in the Village of Lake Placid in eastern New York.

The village board passed a new anti-noise ordinance that bans "hooting" on public streets after 9:30 p.m.

Yelling, shouting, whistling, singing and offensive horn-honking now are also legal no-nos.

First offenders can be fined as much as $250 and spend up to 15 days in jail.

Repeat hooters face fines up to 750 bucks and 60 days in the slammer.
