WCPO reports that traffic enforcement has decreased by nearly 40% between 2015 and 2017. It's unfortunate that in an era when urban living is on the rise, the police aren't ticketing people who speed through urban neighborhoods, block transit stops or park on streetcar tracks.
Question: is there any law/ordinance that prohibits absurdly loud vehicles? I'm annoyed by the "cruising" motorcycles that are extremely loud in OTR and downtown. If the police wanted to ticket folks for excessive noise, is that even an option?

Quite a few different options for them to be charged depending on how and what causes the noise. https://library.municode.com/search?stateId=35&clientId=1650&searchText=motor%20noise&contentTypeId=CODES

That is helpful. Good to know those laws are in the books. I'd love to see the police enforce these laws more rigorously.

The number one problem with Cincinnati law enforcement is the refusal of the stakeholders to accept that Cincinnati is a racially bifurcated city. Half the City consists of minorities living in conditions that promote or at least permit the disorderly lifestyle, like littering, noise, public misbehavior, etc. The non-minority half of the City population is further bifurcated into an ever decreasing number of poor white families, artifacts of a time when unskilled work was available in the City. A small percentage.

Accordingly, any attempt to increase the arrest of disorderlies in the City is immediately met with claims of racial bias. In fact, there is de facto racial bias to the City arrests. Go to Room A on any Monday and one will be hard pressed to find more than a sprinkling of white persons waiting for arraignment. The overwhelming majority will be persons of color. 70, 80, 90%.

If one wanted to have racially balanced enforcement on stopping noisy motorcycles in the City, first a person of color, then not, arrests would end.

A statewide loud pipe ban would be less racist, but then the Harley Hillbillies would go bonkers in the rest of the state. But... they'll all be dead in 10 years.

The Enquirer refuses to buck the Cranley line and place any solid blame on CPD for totally blowing it with the Seven Hills student death.

https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2018/04/23/kyle-plush-questions-piling-up-911-police-response/542898002/

The critical passage from the article:

Body camera footage shows no sign either officer got out of the cruiser at the school. It shows them searching only one of five potential lots. The one they searched was not the one where Kyle was found.

I posted elsewhere on this site that I'm not in a race to blame these officers, because clearly this was a very unusual situation.  But the hurry to pile this on the 911 call center was motivated by a need to desire to protect the police and to twist an arm to get Harry Black fired.

An OTR bartender was beaten and almost killed Saturday night either as the bar was closing or after she left the premises.  The victim required emergency surgery due to head trauma.  I don't know this person but I assume that we'll see it in the news shortly.

News article says she was only hit once, but then hit her head when she hit the ground.

I hope Treehouse bar closes.  It attracts nothing but trash to that area.

Well actually I do.  This was one of those things where a bunch of people start talking about something on social media without saying the name.  So finally I asked someone since the name still hasn't been released.  She used to tend bar at Grammer's, which is where I remember her from.

About treehouse, I had an enlightening experience talking at a bar with a few African American guys who love that place. I was surprised considering the press it's gotten. For my part, I had always avoided it because I assumed, as did my friends, that what they did was tantamount to profiling. But these guys said the so-called "dress code" was the very reason they liked it there, because the folks it keeps out are legit dangerous and the other clubs downtown don't take such precautions. Just thought that was an interesting counterpoint to pass along. It might attract some unsavory characters, but perhaps it's a good thing in the broader scheme of things.

That bar is way too loud. I can hear their music at 3 Points. And at Rosedale, the Treehouse's tunes are so loud it overpowers Rosedale's music.

The place is abrasive. Add the elements from above and I would not be surprised they get flagged as nuisance bar by police very soon.

Nah Treehouse is legit. Itís always packed on the weekends and itís probably more popular than Mt Adams Pavilion nowadays. Diverse crowds to.

I'm starting to get sick of these demolition derbies that break out in front of bars at closing time. There's all this extra violence as people are hammered and trying to get out of DUIs by any means possible.

Yeah I probably made it to closing time 300-400 times in my 20s and never once got in a fight, argument, or any of that sidewalk drama that so many of these characters can't help but engage in.  If alcohol makes you yell and want to punch people and things then you shouldn't be drinking it.

I think any guy who's willing to nearly kill a random woman with a cheap shot to the face, over something as trivial as her having witnessed a fender bender is probably a violent person regardless of the alcohol.

I'm glad this is staying in the news now, and I'm glad that article has a picture of the guy and of the car - hopefully he'll get caught just like the guy who almost killed the Lachey's bartender over some trivial nonsense. CPD and the media never really mention it, but there are tons of cameras all over OTR (between the actual police cameras and businesses/residents) so CPD probably knows a lot more than the news has been mentioning.
