It sounds like you will have support from the neighborhood and are going about it the right way.
And, personally, I would definitely be using the "husband is in law enforcement" to my advantage. Hey, if you can't use some clout when you have it, what's the point!
Eh, it's more about not wanting to get him in trouble at work. (i.e, Um, Mr. Weeble, we understand your wife is calling in noise complaints and expects special treatment because you work here."
An odd and anticlimactic UPDATE. I hadn't actually spoken to Loud Truck Neighbor. But I'd been quietly asking around the neighborhood, asking a handful of neighbors in the houses closest to LTN's house whether they had a problem with the noise, whether it affected their daily routines, etc. Several said yes, it was getting on their nerves, but they weren't sure how to approach LTN about it. Over the weekend, the work on the truck stopped. Cold turkey. I don't know if someone said something to him or if he just heard I was asking around. I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.
