Shut the Duck UP!
We the undersigned do hereby call for respect from the Philadelphia Ride the Ducks Tour Company. The Ride the Ducks Tours are loud, noisy, obnoxious and an ear sore to local citizens of the Philadelphia area. By blasting music, shouting over a loud PA system, and encouraging the tooting of "quackers", the Ride the Ducks Tours consistently disrupt the life of the average Philadelphian and are violating a number of noise pollution laws. We ask for Ride the Ducks Tours to work for a better relationship with Philadelphia residents and by agreeing to three guidelines: Sign PetitionSign Petition
1) When driving through a residential area, Ride The Ducks Tours will respectfully lower their music, exhibit a more restrained use of the PA system, and encourage a more mindful use of "quackers."
2) Ride the Ducks Tours will revise their tour routes of Philadelphia to minimize exposure to the residential community.
3) Ride the Ducks Tour guides will no longer encourage tourists to "quack" at individuals on the street.
We hope that Ride the Ducks Tours aspires to have a better relationship with the citizens of Philadelphia, and will thus respect the wishes of the undersigned. By following these basic guidelines, we know that Philadelphia residents and Ride the Ducks Tours can peacefully co-exist in the great city of brotherly love.
