Well, here's what's wrong with this picture... every day literally thousands if not tens-of-thousands of radio waves pass through our bodies. In addition, stray microwaves and other stray radio emissions are all around us too. And I have to agree with the person who said about the cell phone. Does she use remote controls for her TV? An electric heating blanket? Even the wiring in the home causes RF emissions. In my new home I have a septic system. If the borough where I live put in city sewage, I would be FORCED to hook up to their system and have to pay out the wazoo ... no choice. I have a house in the city of Sharon that's vacant and does NOT have water turned on to the premises ... yet I am forced to pay a sewer fee every month unless I sever the connection. So while I understand her "concern" ... realize there are other people forced into services they don't want. And there are things in your immediate environment that are far more dangerous than the small amount of radio waves emanating from this device. Besides, if she wants to read her own meter... fine ... pay more in service charges because now it's a special process. And once there is a change in home ownership it MUST be converted. No questions. Problem Solved.

I agree with this user's comments 100%. And I'd like to add a few comments of my own... It seem that every year, more and more is being "looked the other way". I am a Sharon resident. When I drive the streets near my home I stop at each and every stop sign because that is the law. How many times I reach an intersection first and come to a complete stop -- and a car approaches and before I have the opportunity to pull out with the right-of-way the other driver will coast right through the intersection! Couple that with the NO PARKING infractions, parking too close to stop signs and fire hydrants, the music that blares out of people's vehicles, the gangs walking down the streets, unruly kids, drug useage in plain sight, littering and public disturbances in the middle of the night, stopped vehicles in the middle of roadways and alleys, large crowds of youths walking down the middle of a road forcing cars to go around them... now I'm sorry, if I'm just a resident who notices all this -- you can't tell me the Police and Authorities don't see this as well. The question is: Why isn't anyone ENFORCING THE LAWS? I was told it was because it would create too many calls to the mayor. "WHAT?" So what?! If you call the mayor angry and upset because you got a fine for breaking the law -- then you should get another fine for being stupid TWICE. My point about the traffic offenses is the example and error of compounding overlooked violations. When the people who are breaking the law see that nobody is enforcing it - it causes a downhill spiral of more laws being broken. This results in, the crime rate - and the crime magnitude, increasing every year. 'Well, I get away with running stop signs and listening to my music loud, maybe I'll bring my gun with me too.' We need a strong force to bring our communities back to one where you can feel safe to walk the streets, enjoy our porches and yards, live in quiet peace and allow our children to play outdoors. In order to achieve this we need to come together as a community and we need the willingness and agressive commitment from leaders and police to help us reach our goal. We need to tell the criminals, vandals, drug dealers and thugs "We own this neighborhood - not you and we are not going to let you destroy it!!!" I would rather live in a 'Police State' than a neighborhood run by gangs, thugs and criminals. I'm sorry - but the time for 'looking the other way' is passed and if we don't do something soon -- very soon -- then the places we once thought of as home will be the very nightmares from which we want to escape. Personally, I have too much money invested in my home and nobody should ever be forced to leave because they feel entrapped. I would love to hear from anyone who is interested in getting involved to make a difference. You can contact me via email and I will pave a road for us to be heard!
