Q. The neighbors on the street behind us have been setting off fireworks every day for 3 weeks now. We don't mind the noise, although it gets old when you're going to bed at 10 PM, and get woken up a couple of times a night. However, their bottle rockets keep coming all the way across our backyard, over our roof, and keep landing on our porch and cars. I was hit by one today while standing on the porch talking to our neighbor. Is there any way they can be made to fire them off in a "safe" direction so that our cars, dogs, and ourselves aren't being hit by them?
