It smacks of raw bureaucracy. Hopefully these permits don’t cost much,” one user identified as Sergio MC wrote on Twitter.

“How are you going to control the decibels if in a residential area, usually between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., between 50 and 60 decibels is allowed, either more or less a mid-volume television, a low-mid-volume speaker exceeds those decibels without counting on the animation,” added another tweeter Ricardo Valverde.
