Raced at Englishtown for years when I lived in NJ. Back in the 70's people would complain about the noise. If there is a drag strip or shooting range don't buy land and build homes they were there first. No different then building a home next to a landfill then complaining about the smell.
It's not the people who are the problem. It's the [censored] developers. They buy up land in very mediocre or sometimes disgusting parts of a certain area, and then hire their marketeers to push their development on people too stupid to know what's really going on in the area (people out of state).
Then, either the developer begins killing anything his potential customers don't like, or the developer just leaves them to get rid of the problems themselves.
But the people actually are the problem, in that even in this age of information, they will still move into an area without doing any proper due diligence.
