Italy's highest court of appeals has ruled playing very loud music from your car is a crime.
The Supreme Court of Cassation made this ruling in the case of a Sicilian man who was caught by police playing loud music at night in his car.
In its ruling, it said the man "risked disturbing peoples' sleep" - Studiocataldi reported.
With a "monster" car stereo - the man was able to play music between 200 and 1500 watts on the streets of Messina, a city in Northeast Sicily.
The court upheld the the November 2014 judgement by a Messina court, ordering him to pay a 300-euro fine in addition to 1,000 euros of legal costs.
His stereo was also confiscated, despite there being no complaints from residents regarding his music playing - the Local reported.Reuse content
