Some neighbors in one Stonington neighborhood have been revved up recently over what they claim is a "loud" dirt bike.
Police said the neither the young rider or the property owners are breaking any laws.
Now, at least one complainant wants the town to address the problem.
To address the problem, police tested the noise level of the dirt bike Thursday afternoon and compared it to other yard tools.
They're trying to determine if the exhaust noise coming from 15-year-old Mason Fusaro's dirt bike is a violation of a town ordinance or just being a nuisance.
"Every time the kid starts the motorcycle they call the police," said Fusaro's grandmother Eleanor Webber, who owns the property where her grandson rides. "There's always a policeman here within 5 to 10 minutes."
Neighbor Aaron Green petitioned the town's board of police commissioners to charge the sophomore with a crime in order to keep him from riding on the lot.
"Her son can ride during the daytime as long as he does not trespass on anyone's property without their permission," according to an email sent by police to Karen Fusaro, who is Mason's mother. "He also cannot ride on the roadway."
Police also advised Karen Fusaro to limit Mason Fusaro's riding to short spurts of time.
"I don't think anything the town does is going to make him happy," said Karen Fusaro about her neighbor's petition. "He said 'Oh they'll never get an accurate reading from the thing that measures sound.'"
Neighbors told Eyewitness News that they aren't bothered by the motorbike.
"No, it doesn't really bother me," said Joshua Harris.
The sample test result of the police test was below a noise threshold at idle and not fully revved. Idle was 72 decibels and revved in a pass at 76. However, both are still below the noise threshold.
Capt. Jerry Desmond said it's just information they'll use in resolving this neighborhood question.
