I live in a rural county of Oregon and have been harassed by a neighbor across the street for over six months. I work at nights and their 16 year old kid rides his dirt bike around in circles in his front yard while I'm trying to sleep. I along with the rest of the neighbors who were bothered on the street talked to his parents. His parents told us to go to hell. The next day this kid started the dirt bike routine again and I called the Sheriff. The Sheriff warned these people that they were breaking the noise ordnances and the next time they were caught it would be a $540.00 fine.
It's been a game to them ever since. The kid will get on his bike for 15min or so and stop before the Sheriff arrives, wait until he leaves, and start up all over again.
They have also started a campaign of harassment against me personally by honking their horn when they pass my house at all hours of the day and night, stopping in front of my house and shining their truck headlights on my house late at night while revving their engine then burning rubber down the road.
Last night in the pitch dark I caught two kids trying to jump the five foot fence that surrounds my 2acre property and scared them away. The parents, their 16 year old kid ans all his friends are involved in this.
I have been documenting everything this whole time and just ordered outdoor video cameras and a time lapse vcr to catch anything they try to do against me or my property. This was a difficult purchase to afford since I am not wealthy, but I have to protect myself against these morons legally in case I have to defend myself on my property or prove property damage.
The other neighbors are all retired and have been intimidated by their hostility so they refuse to get involved, I am completely on my own. I have not played into their hands and have ignored them completely at all times except for calling the Sheriff on the dirt bike noise.
What kind of evidence do I need to get this to stop and sue for harassment and the loss of enjoying my home?
Thanks for your help.
