One of the most frustrating things about driving with the radio on is the damn emergency vehicle and general traffic sound effects that they play. I mean, I’d be driving and listening to the morning show on one of the radio stations, and I’d hear an ambulance approaching. I’d start to slow down and look around for an ambulance, but there isn’t any. Talk about a really bad annoyance for other drivers! Not that I slow down much, but I do just in case and out of habit.
I’ve heard the radio play car alarms, cars beeping, car crashes, cars speeding, ambulances, fire trucks, and police sirens during their morning shows, commercials, and even in the music. Those traffic sounds and emergency sirens really should be illegal to play on the radio. One of these days, someone is going to react to the sound effects thinking there is a real incident occurring around them and get seriously hurt or even hurt someone else.
