Re: “Las Vegas police hopeful crackdown on illegal fireworks will bear fruit” (Friday Review-Journal). Your article made it sound as if civil fines are helping to cut down on illegal fireworks, citing 3,700 reports by July 4 as compared with 20,000 for all of last year.
I made my report about 10 p.m. Thursday on ispyfireworks.com. This is the first year I’ve reported because I figured nothing would be done.
I was bombarded with what seemed to be dueling firework displays, with my house in the middle. Some of the fireworks were so loud it sounded like bombs going off as a I stood in my driveway. My dogs were terrified.
Perhaps there are fewer complaints because people have given up.
