Silence the sirens

Have your say

I’ve recently moved into a flat overlooking Broad Street, for which I’m pleased and grateful. However, the one big fat fly in the ointment isn’t the traffic and building work noise, it’s the all too frequent noise of blaring ambulance and police sirens.

Is Halifax a town in crisis, with people being rushed to A & E, or the police racing to RTAs or scenes of crime in time to catch the culprits? Or is it a case of ‘trigger happy’ cops and paramedics spicing up their routines and guaranteeing getting through the traffic at any time of the day or night, unhindered?

This intrusive din is very distressing and annoying. Would someone care to explain why this noise pollution is being allowed to happen so frequently?
