A question of noise


Dear Sir,

Further to Peg Butterfield’s letter titled “Night-time kite-flying menace”, I would like to know if the following law is still in effect in Bermuda:

Summary Offences Act 1926 Offences Section 18(a) relating to games in public places.

Offences relating to games in public places:

(a) Any person who, in any public place, flies any kite over the public place to the annoyance or danger of any passenger or frequenter

(b) Plays cricket or any other game to the annoyance or danger of any passenger or frequenter, or any person in any house near or adjacent to such public place, commits an offence against this Act.

KENNETH G. STONE
