Description

I recently moved from Manhattan to New Haven and was shocked (and a little deafened) by the higher volume of police and ambulance sirens in this city. Why are the sirens so loud, especially compared to a much larger city with high background sound levels? If possible, lowering the volume to be comparable to other cities will improve hearing and quality of life.
