Nope, there is no solution. You can of course wear earplugs, but that won't solve the issue. You'll still get woke up, and you'll feel nervous about not hearing potential burglars or issues with family members who may need help in the middle of the night, if you live with any.
And get used to being treated as if YOU are the problem. Except in these forums, any time I complain about scumbags on extremely loud vehicles, people either laugh, scoff, or outwardly claim that I am the one with the problem. Besides a huge army of anti-social scumbags who get their rocks off ruining our lives, there are legions of idiots who think that's an A-OK thing for them to do.
Got your ears hurt by a Harley-riding slob because you had the audacity to have a window down while driving? Well, what's your problem that you don't want discomfort and literal hearing damage? What's wrong with you? Don't like losing 4+ hours of sleep every night when some scumbag decides it's time for you to get up? Too bad! They have rights! (Ruining your life seems to be one of them.) Land of the free!
Last night alone, I got woke up 3 times by a loud vehicle. Those are just the times I woke up fully enough to recall. The only reason I was able to get back to sleep at all is because I had drugged myself with 100 mg of diphenhydramine (a double dose).
Go ahead, call the police. If they're like in my area, they'll come out, then make you feel like an idiot for complaining, then do nothing further.
Embrace the misery!
