very loud semi trucks

Editor's Comment: Unfortunately, there are regulations in place that are rarely if ever enforced. You've hit the nail on the head. The one's that get me are the Jake's Brake used through engines with no or poor noise suppression - they can rattle windows from a long ways away. I would bet that you're near a downhill slope or someplace where the trucks have to slow down or stop. They make noise with the Jake Brake as they are coming to a stop, then they make noise again when they accelerate. I guess the only thing you can do is complain, regularly and loudly, to the local traffic cops. But you and I both know that's not going to do much good. So, you're left with either installing sound-proof windows, or moving.
