Engage Met Police to reduce siren usage

I have lived in many cities, including New York and the use of Police sirens in London, is much more widespread. This gives the perception that London is a high crime city and inherently makes people feel less safe. Not to mention the fact that siren usage is unrestricted; day and night, even when there is no traffic, keeping people in busy areas awake with the excessive noise.

It makes me wonder if the Met Police stations are actually located in the wrong places, hence they have to travel back and forward to the high crime areas. I notice sometimes on Holloway road and Liverpool Road in North London that patrol cars dangerously speed in one direction down the street with sirens and lights, and then pass another car going in the opposite direction a few seconds later.

Speeding patrol cars is also a danger to the public and pedestrians as they go through red lights and across pedestrian crossings, and endanger cyclists
