"Noisy and busy with traffic before and after school hours"
Although Aptos Avenue may seem quiet and peaceful because it resides and is surrounded in a residential, it really isn’t. This is because of Aptos Middle School that sits on this street. I remember visiting the school frequently when I was younger because I had friends there, and only during some parts of the day is it quiet. But in reality, this street never gets enough peace as the middle school kids come out at lunch creating a lot of ruckus. Especially at around the time when the kids get out of school and are being picked up by their parents, that is when it is most hectic. The traffic is so bad on this street that you’d wish you could just run through all the cars, literally. Most of the times parents are efficient at picking up their kid and going, but there are intendances where stupidity pops up. Sometimes, when visiting the school, I would hear residents play music, or rather blasting it, maybe to compete against the Aptos Middle School noise. I would definitely find it really hard to live on this street.
