Rap Not Rails Amsterdam's Biggest Noise Problem

I'm not sure why all of a sudden a lot of people in Amsterdam are complaining about the noise from trains blowing their whistles. It has been going on for years. I lived in Amsterdam until this past year. I was never woken out of sleep by a train whistle. In fact I found the train whistles a comforting sound. However, numerous times I woke up to the sound of a car going by the house with rap music blaring so loudly that the windows in my house were rattling. If the Amsterdam alderpeople want to get rid of noise pollution, they should start by cracking down on cars with cranked up radios.
