Caltrain increases horn volumes AND stress levels

This might make police officials and/or regulators feel "satisfied", but what about the stress levels of the people living nearby the tracks? I asked a librarian at the Menlo Park Library (Ravenswood and Alma crossing) if she has noticed the change, and she has definitely been stressed by the increased volume and length of horn blasts.
What do we do? Just submit to some kind of bureaucratic nonsense that equates train safety with volume level? Louder horns will not stop suicides, that is clear.
