Main Street noise pollution
May 14, 2017
The chirping crosswalk indicators on Main Street are completely over the top in terms of volume and penetrating tone. They can be heard inside office spaces over a block away from intersections. For those who live or work near an intersection, where these chirps are virtually continuous (alternating between perpendicular streets), I would expect these noisemakers to drive someone to go "postal."
While I am sure these noisemakers have been installed in the name of "safety," we still live in a small and fairly quiet mountain town, and such safety devices are unnecessary noise pollution that detract from our small-town values. Get rid of them.
