New Year - Fireworks
« on: December 30, 2010, 09:31:45 AM »
Hey everyone! Does anyone know what the rules are regarding fireworks on private property?  I'm guessing its legal right? Now I read on news24 "All residential areas would be patrolled "vigorously" to ensure compliance with the law, the city said in a statement on Wednesday." http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Cape-Town-warns-on-New-Year-fireworks-20101229

Would appreciate it if someone could clarify exactly what is aloud and what is not...

WRONG!!! Fireworks on private properties are ILLEGAL!!! The city council has designated special areas where fireworks will be allowed (check your local municipality for your area) and patrols will be going around and fining people who ignore the legislation. The main reasons they are illegal are that (1) your dogs might be used to the noise, but mine may not be, and (2) you might like the noise or have kids who like the noise, but I might not want to be disturbed by your noise.

I can already foresee that our beaches are going to be covered in used fireworks packages and leftovers on the morning of the 1st January....bloody nuisance, they are...

I agree 100% with Kosi. I personally HATE guy-fox soley because of the mess that it leaves on our beaches and for the disruption it causes in residential areas. I have a 53 Kg rottweiler that goes be4k when he hears those loud crackers and it upsets me. I wish those bloody idiots can see what effect it has on him. the poor guy. Dogs can hear a grasshopper chewing on a leave blade( thats a fact), so immagine what those crackers sound like. those rockets and bombs and stuff.

I love the holiday season, but i never look forward to new years eve coz of all the fireworks

just my 2c.

tight lines
Fishing is not just someting I do, its part of who I am
