Apparently being cut off, sitting at a green traffic light, braking abruptly w/o turn signal, coasting in the fast lane with 10 cars behind you, etc…are no longer acceptable reasons to use you horn.

Seems that many are afraid of being shot, so I’m trying to see if there is a new consensus of when one is allowed to use their horn?

I’m of the opinion that immediately letting someone know of their transgressions will assist them in making fewer transgressions in the future, but am finding that people are more concerned about an infinitesimal chance of escalation than helping people learn to be more considerate/aware of the world around them.

I usually blow my horn before I flip them the bird. Want to make sure they see it.

I like when you lay the horn on someone for doing something stupid and they honk back. I’ll lay it on them again. I’m not letting them get the last honk in.

There are different degrees of using a car horn.

Quick short tap alert to signal someone not paying attention at a green light



Someone pulls out in front of you and you have to slam the breaks and sit on it as loud and hard as possible.


And there’s levels in between too.

I use my horn when people are being idiots or driving like dumbasses. I use my horn a lot.

I'll point at my middle finger, but I've also found the jerk off symbol to work as well. Charlotte has the worst drivers I have ever seen.

Sounds like a location issue. Move out of New Orleans.

When I need to let someone know they’re fricking retarded and don’t know how to drive.

im a pretty mild mannered person and have alot of patience but ive been using that mofo lately. Alot of drivers are assholes, dont have common courtesy or they are just plain stupid.

When I leave the house at 630 AM to let the neighbors know it's time to rise and shine.

Whenever you pull up behind a state trooper again just lay on that horn. The troopers find it funny.
