Besides the motorcycles, mopeds, and loud muffled cars, one very irritating noise are the emergency vehicles. It seems they have boosted their sirens to extremely loud levels. On the street I have to cover my ears as the level of noise from these vehicles is outrages. I understand that they have to get sound out because most people have their windows rolled up, A/C on, and radios up loud, but there has to be a better way. Here in the Hobron Corridor we can hear the vehicles before they even cross the bridge from Ala Moana Park area.
Can't something be done about this?
