Capt. Bronstad, Sheriff's Dept.
" Onondaga Sheriff Captain Peter Bronstad.
said it's the Unlawful Conduct Law.
It's a tough one to crack if there's no levels which is why a noise ordinance with the levels is preferable if you want a noise ordinance.
Unreasonable Cause is just a law hanging out there.
It would be the Town Justice that would determine whether it was unreasonable.
There is a law there but it is open to a lot of interpretation.
If you want something more in black and white than you would want a noise ordinance.
Councilman Bailey asked if Capt. Bronstad
knew of any other towns that have one.

they were trying to get people to give their keys to a sober driver but there weren't enough sober people there.
