    There's no reasonable deactivation of the stereo while on the road in public, better to go the deferred re-education route.

    Follow the vehicle and relieve the tires of their air in a non-repairable way, leaving a polite note with a smiley face on it so they know why. High tech version would be a telescoping arm or R/C toy to plant a GPS tracker so the odds of them getting away go down.

    EMP would take a LOT of energy to be effective and the risk of collateral damage is just too great.

    The speaker idea, while novel sounding (and props to the creative-ness of the idea) would be short lived. The compression drivers cannot handle anywhere near 1kW particularly at those frequencies with a CW sine input! They would be crispy! Although the efficiency of the horn is very good if you really want sound that can pluck nails out of boards, even raise wisps of smoke at a few feet, you want the Chrysler Air Raid Siren!

    That beast WILL belt them hard and will do it as long as you have gas to feed the hemi engine powering it. The neighbors might not like it very much though!

    A remote control that can deploy the vehicle air bags with "per car" accuracy would be interesting. When deployed in a non collision event the driver basically is getting the equivalent of a Mike Tyson KO punch to the face! o_O The cops would love this to use for people that don't stop. It would put an end to those long and dangerous chases, for example. (or they could just remote lock the doors and kill the engine, aka Northstar system)

    on-star. northstar was the Cadillac engines of the mid 90's to the mid 00's

    how about retractable road spikes? or just start taking out tires with a .17 low noise, and a very small bullet to find.

    people kept driving through our lawn when I was a kid, we built a set of road spikes and people stopped driving through our lawn.


    I hate the loud music too, esp. when I am tying to sleep and working night shift.

    Re-education or your efforts will be futile.

    Wow, such high tech fantasies...
    Have you thought about a brick?

    I live at the beach so I get yahoos from miles around at all hours who have the need to share. The motorcycles are the biggest offenders here, but we get some music lovers as well.

    The 'freedom' to enjoy yourself doesn't give you the right to destroy the enjoyment of hundreds of people. At 3:00 am a handful of bikes racing up the street with out mufflers should be sent to 're-education camps'.
    It is a social disease that glorifies being obnoxious.

    In CA the cops will do nothing. They claim it is too difficult a ticket to give what with calibrating and distances...Every time I ask them, they all say the same thing; "To busy responding to shooting calls"...Shooting into Starbucks is more like it...
