Annoying circling helicopters?

Is there anything that I can do about the helicopters that circle around my neighborhood so frequently? They often fly low. It seems that every neighborhood I move to ends up with them circling above at least once a week, usually at night. My city has a noise ordinance (from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.), but for some reason, the copters are allowed to fly even during those "quiet hours".

    Where do you live? Here in LA, helicopters circling are either police or news, following a chase, or filming an accident scene. They have to keep moving. Also, if you are in an area where filming is frequent, they could be doing a night shoot and they get permits to annoy people for hours. (we used to live near the Warner back lot and this happened regularly) Otherwise..are you near an airport, large police station or hospital with a helipad? Good luck.

    They're either Police or News helicopters. You could complain but, if you start getting tickets you'll know why. They are protecting your neighborhood.

    They're probably saving someones life.

    One day it could be your life they'll be saving.
