FILLMORE, Calif. — Soon to be armed with a new device that can measure the intensity of engine and stereo noise, Fillmore police will be cracking down on loud vehicles in the community.

"I think that it's going to be a big step forward," said former Councilman Ken Smedley, a Fillmore resident for 15 years. "This boombox phenomenon has really exploded. I can't spend a nice evening in my backyard without one of these vehicles going by every 14 minutes."
