I never directly confront people like this. Once you have established that someone is an arsehole, you can be sure they will not respond to civilized discourse.

Good advice. Also, people like that love confrontations and getting into arguments.

In my neighborhood, I used to have problems with a neighbor behind us playing extraordinarily loud music. Every time he did it, I'd call the cops, and they'd shut him down.

Good strategy. If you confront them they can end up calling the cops on you, and they'll probably play the music louder and more often just to annoy you.

I think this is BAD advice. I agree that they love confrontations.
The reason that they do enjoy it is that they are looking for someone to tell them NO!
If these punks are never told "No", their behavior becomes more outrageous. They KNOW that what they are doing is wrong, but like all predators, they are testing the fences. They find no fences and it makes them crazy inside.
So, I say confront them, and be prepared for an escalation.
By being prepared, I mean prepared with superior firepower..like a 12ga with #4 buck (more pellets than 00 buck).

Fortunately, I live in a small city just outside of Houston. Basically, it’s a subdivision-sized city. The city does not want the residents to condone boorish behavior, as it drives down real-estate values; so they encourage us to call and report disruptors.
