yep, I agree.
The first thing that I would do is make police and fire/rescue get rid of their vehicle sirens. Those things KILL my ears when they pass by. Absolutely one of he worst offenders! Arrogant bastages!
next? I would eliminate all commercial & LE air traffic until they can abate the noise. Those things are incessantly disturbing the peace at my home, 24/7. And are especially bad when flight patterns are overhead due to wind direction and I'm 23 miles from the airport. Or the LE helicopter rotors that thump my house, just maddening when I'm trying to sleep.
Come to think of it, I hear the above stuff way more often than any motorcycles with loud pipes.
