    where

    I would like to ask you, native speakers of English to help me out.

    When you have the radio turned up that loud, it is not safe. It is a distraction because you can't hear emergency vehicles, honking hones, or other cars. It is a real problem at the beach resorts where you can hear music screaming from car radios. Many people who come to the resorts are looking for peace and quiet.

    I think the three its mean you have the radio turned up that loud. Is it correct?

    I couldn't understand the sentence "it is a real proble at the beach resorts where you can hear music screaming from car radios". This where is a relative adverb modifing the beach resots. The sentence doesn't make sense to me at all. If the where were that, it does. It is a real problem at the beach resorts that you can hear music screaming from car radios. That you can hear music screaming from car radios is a real problem at the beach resorts. Ot at least don't you think you need , in front of where. It is a real problem at the beach resorts, where you can hear music screaming from car radios.
    What do you, native speakers of English, think about this? Please help me.

    I think the three its mean you have the radio turned up that loud. Is it correct? "It" here is used to refer to a thing previously mentioned or easily identified, in this case the loud radio.

    Where is the problem? The beaches are where ( in which place) you hear the loud radios.
