dee daar & not SCREAMING US style 999 sirens please.

Comment 10th July 2010
No new equipment is needed, just a flick of a switch with modern 999 vehicles.
Living in London my ears are always blasted with the excessively loud & high pitched US style sirens.
All day long & most nights sleep will be interrupted even if they are mills away.
Dee Darr ones can be herd just as well if you have car stereo blasting & windows shut.
After all they use them all over Europe- Germany, France, Italy, well rest of the world in my experience.
And even some US city's are now going back to them.
Because the pitch is lower your ears don't bleed if your a pedestrian.
You can also tell where its coming from better, and if there is more than one vehicle.
If they really have to use it, it should be if the vehicle is 2nd or 4th…. in a convoy.
The default siren should be dee darr.
These screaming high pitch US ones are a real blight & misery easpeashaly if your a pedestreon.

Why does this matter?
