The local news channel WSB TV (Channel 2) which is the local ABC affiliate has been reporting on the drifting ban in Atlanta. One person on the news even mentioned that is was kind of like letting people play soccer but not football. WSB TV brought out a DB meter that never registered above 76db from the video we saw. The fireworks on Friday night at the local baseball stadium register 145-150db over double when they are shot off from the exact same area that go off mind you late into the night on this week night.
The WSB broadcasters even brought up that Cindy McCain (wife of R Senator John McCain) has drifted and openly supports the sport as something she does with her son. In case you missed it the city is passing a new sound DB ordinance and in addition they specifically ban drifting within 1000 feet (almost a 1/4 mile) of residential zoning which is basically a death sentence for drifting in the city. They will have a re-air about this in the 5:00pm EST / 2:00pm PST news cycle which you can catch live online. The Facebook group is also rapidly growing and already broke 7,000 members which you can follow the link below.
