OK, so I'm all for being a considerate neighbor but here it is after 10:00 pm on a school night and someone is making a crapload of noise with an air chisel on their car. The dogs are freaking out and the kids will be bitching any minute. The noise ordinance says 11:00pm but I'm gonna give him until 10:30 then I'm going to say something.

Jim, I also live in Rochester (Penfield actually). I was just pulling up some sub-floor at the top of my stairs to the basement. I was whailing away with the back of my hammer pretty hard.

So, in fairness to your neighbor, it might have been me that you heard.
If so, sorry about that.

So out of consideration for some potentially ill neighbors or early risers, people should be silent after 8 p.m. regardless of the fact officials have deemed the quiet time as 11?

What if the guy needs his car to go to work tomorrow at 4 am? What if he works an odd shift and this is the only time he has to work?

According to this: http://www.nonoise.org/lawlib/cities/ny/rochester.htm
it is 10pm, not 11, and the time restriction only applies to construction activities. There is no time limit placed on this section "75-4. Excessive noise prohibited. No person shall make, continue or cause or permit to be made or continued any excessive noise."

I live on the westside so it wasn't you. This guy was in his driveway under the car. If you've ever heard an air chisel working on a tailpipe, you know it causes quite a racket.

The guy stopped for a while so I went to bed. Then he started again. As I got up I could see someone else who wouldn't take a "chill pill" was talking to him and he stopped.

I suppose the car was on a jack stand if he was working underneath it. There is an easy fix the next time he's that inconsiderate. Take one 10lb sledge hammer and give the jack stand a good whack with it while he's working on the car.
