I'm also living at such a busy street. It's a big difference compared to a house in a quiet street without any traffic.

Keeping the window open during night is a huge problem now. In my old home I did that always, now I have to fight against the heat in the rooms or the noise.

Also looking a movie with open windows is not much fun. The cars stop at the traffic lights, the engines start crying when the light turns green and I missed part of a dialog...

That beeing said, choose your home carefully. Especially when you lived before in a quiet neighborhood.
