Maine-e-ac
Do I have the right to sue a town for not enforcing a law/ordinance?
I live on a busy street in a resort town, have complained to the police department many times regarding motorcyles without mufflers. The cops just ignore the current laws requiring motorcyles to have mufflers instead of straight pipes. Do I have the right to sue the town, for not enforcing laws and ordinances? What attorney would handle a case like this in Maine?

No. how can they enforce a law when they dont know who is breaking it? they cant waste their time tracking down motercycles they have more important things to do. also you would have to say how this effected you. other than it being annoying.

No you dont have the right to sue because you think they are not enforcing the law. And really how have you been harmed by this if it is true. What loss have you suffered from this. Write a complaint to the police commissioner and tell them your problem.

its called officer discretion. that means the officer can enforce watever he want to. it all depends if he want to right that person a ticket or not.

You can try to sue them as that is your right but I don't believe even an attorney would pick up the case for you unless they just want some free money on a case your going to lose. The city and the cops can't be everywhere all the time and certainly don't have the resources to sit outside your house and wait for a loud muffler motorcycle to come by. Might also be they are ignoring that particular law for the moment in lieu of assaults in progress, burglaries, traffic accidents, domestic violence calls and all those petty things we should ignore for your loud mufflers Might want to give Century 21 or Remax a call.

Most lawsuits for failure to enforce the law are barred by doctrines of governmental immunity. Generally speaking, government agencies have discretion in how they expend their resources in providing public services. The government has to prioritize what it does to protect the citizenry, and courts are loath to second-guess those discretionary decisions.

You are, of course, free to go out and sign private complaints against those bikers with loud mufflers.
