    Those Damn KIDS !!!!! This device is sweet .....

    Britain has new weapon against loitering youths -- Sonic Teenager Deterrent
    Feb 15 8:38 AM US/Eastern

    Shopkeepers in central England have been trying out a new device that emits an uncomfortable high-pitched noise designed to disperse young loiterers outside their stores without bothering adults.

    Police carrying out the pilot project in Staffordshire say some of those who have tested the "Sonic Teenager Deterrent," nicknamed the mosquito, have talked of buying one of their own.

    The device which costs 622 pounds (908 euros, 1,081 dollars) "doesn't cause any pain to the hearer," according to Inspector Amanda Davies, quoted by Britain's domestic Press Association news agency.

    "The noise can normally only be heard by those between 12 and 22 and it makes the listener feel uncomfortable," she added.

    Once in their early 20s, people lose their capacity to hear sounds at such a high pitch.

    "It is controlled by the shopkeepers. If they can see through their window that there is a problem, they turn the device on for a few minutes until the group has dispersed," Davies said.

    "Shop owners have reported fabulous results and we've been approached by some who are considering buying their own equipment," she said.

    I have this group of teenagers that hang out, outside of my place till all hours during the week and such ... I might need to invest in one of these.

    I've always used shock collars on my kids to keep them in line. :grin:

    "Sonic Packer Fan Deterrants"...sheep herders are now using these devices to run off amorous Packer fans who drop by the farm for some Friday night lovin'...the farmer just turns it on for few minutes and the Packer fans are easily dispersed...the sheep are so grateful that they produce twice the wool as other sheep (who aren't protected from advances by Packer fans)! :lol:

    that would be a waste of 1000 bucks that u could spend on strippers instead, for example.

    Why don't they just go outside and threaten them by saying they'll call the cops if they don't stop loitering? That would be cheaper.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
