Municipal Study: More People sit on Terraces in the Sun than when it Rains
During 9 months in 2012 and 2013, a service of the Amsterdam municipality investigated the impact of noise levels made by people sitting on café terraces. One of the results was that more noise is made when there is sun than when there is rain. Another conclusion was that on Friday and on weekends, there is an increase of noise in the evening and night. Also when there are special days such as Queens Day and Gay Pride Day, there is an increase in noise.
