Car drivers torture NZ city with Celine Dion songs

Car drivers armed with a playlist of Celine Dion songs have been plaguing residents of a small New Zealand city for months on end with loud, late-night "siren battles".

The beloved Canadian singer's melodies lose their charm when blared at high volume as late as 2 am, say the sleepless residents of Porirua, north of Wellington and home to 60,000 people.

"It's really loud music. They only play a quarter of the song, so it's like having a turntable and it comes screeching out."

Competing cars park with their engines running, blasting out music before moving to avoid police, Baker said.

One resident, Diana Paris, wrote on the petition she was "sick" of the noise.

"Although I enjoy Celine Dion in the comfort of my lounge and at my volume, I do not enjoy hearing fragments of it stopping and starting at any time between 7 pm and 2 am," she said.

"There's gonna be a civil war!"
"Really? When?"
"Lemme check my phone."

As long as they play the ENTIRE SONG, everything will be fine.

That really seems like the issue from the article quotes. 🤨

Eh, I don't have anything against Celine Dion....crank it, I say.
