Letter: Leaf blowers
March 19, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

I've read your coverage about the leaf blowers in San Mateo. When you have a leaf blower operating next to your home almost every day, it is easy to say to vote against them. I understand they need them to do their work efficiently. If only those guys could ease off on the accelerator. Why can't they at least tone the noise down? That would be just considerate. I have reported them twice to the police for operating early Sunday morning. The police came out immediately to shut them down. If these leaf blowing guys want to have some slack, they should operate on a lower speed, at least. When they are full blast, they give you a headache.

What do you think of the new statewide plastic bag ban?

It's great, we need to get rid of them
Doesn't matter around here, they are already banned
Don't like it
Hope it starts a nationwide trend
Don't like it, but whatever
