Street Noise

The neighborhood is being besieged nearly 20 hours a day by motorcycles, cars and taxicabs with missing, modified or broken mufflers. This is in addition to cars blasting music with thundering bass.

Most of this activity occurs after dark but is by no means limited to it. A lot of this is just plain cruising the neighborhood with many of these vehicles passing by the same point multiple times in just an hour.

My first question is where are the police? To the naked eye there is not much police presence in the Castro. Except for an occasional drive through (usually with the windows up). I know the police have better things to do than cite people for noisy vehicles but this noise problem is driving down the quality of life in the Castro dramatically.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
