Ask HPD: Loud vehicle alarms

Q. "I hear vehicle alarms go off constantly, sometimes for minutes at a time, can I call police about this?"

A. Various things can activate vehicle alarms, and alarms that sound for an extended period can be extremely annoying. If an officer is called to investigate an excessive vehicle alarm and finds that the alarm is continually activated for more than five minutes, the officer can issue $112 citation.

If the vehicle alarm does not reset or stop and continues to sound for more than 10 minutes, the vehicle can be removed from either public or private property.
