My neighbor shines a light in my bedroom window at night. What can I do

Preston, ID |

I have kept a log of the nights and have called the local police many times and they come over and make him turn the light off. The light is pointed at my window and he only turns it on at night toward my window. What can I do??

  1. Window coverings that effectively block light are inexpensive and readily available. That solution is superior in every way to any effort through the law to change the neighbor's behavior. The law can punish crimes, but is ill-suited to compelling people to treat each other with kindness and consideration.
