‘Chicken man’ has been confusing neighbors with Dodge Challenger that sounds like a barnyard

That's a bit odd
  • Roosevelt Island is tiny, but densely populated
  • And there are laws in place to protect residents from noise pollution
  • Some residents claim this Dodge Challenger has probably broken those laws with its strange ‘horn’

There’s a relatively small island right in the middle of Manhattan called Roosevelt Island.

If you’re on the island, the view is amazing, and you get to hear the sound of the buzzing city around you.

Except, in recent times, residents of the island have been left confused by loud farm animal sounds, because there are no farm animals on the island.

As it turns out, it was actually a Dodge Challenger that was making those noises.

The Dodge Challenger is an American icon, a gorgeous piece of Americana.

People use it for all kinds of records, usually performance-related ones or, sometimes, they’ve even turned it into a boat.

This Challenger driver used it for something else entirely.

The owner of this black Dodge Challenger with tinted windows has been blaring loud animal sounds pretty much 24/7, leaving residents confused and annoyed.

They keep hearing the sound of dogs barking, cows mooing and chickens clucking, as well as sirens.

As it turns out, this was just a Dodge Challenger owner who fitted a horn that sounded like a barnyard.

Roosevelt Island is densely populated, because it has over 20,000 residents, even though it’s only 2 miles long (3.2 km).

So this means this driver managed to upset a large number of people in record time.

The thing is, residents claim this is not only annoying, but it is also probably illegal because there are laws banning vehicles from playing sound audible from 150 feet away – or 45 meters.

While most aren’t happy, there’s at least one island resident who is.

Roosevelt Island resident Tim McManus wrote in an Instagram post that his daughter loves the car because of the sounds.

She calls the driver ‘chicken man’.

So there we go, that’s the silver lining right there.
