Default Re: No horn please! (Honking Menace)

I generally don't use the horn, but in my place there are around 6 blind turnings on the narrow road, and itís safer to use the horn as there are umpteen type of drivers who don't hug the left side, a little noise pollution is better than a fender bender or worse.

Also I use it when I have these pedestrians who walk three abreast on the road instead of the pathway, and they are all lost in their own world and give looks that kill when I give small tweet. The worst case are when I see people making the kids walk on the road instead of the pathway.

Honking is a menace. Drivers honk in no honking zone such as near hospitals, schools, etc. Windows always need to be rolled up, because of this.

Have made conscious efforts to minimise/eliminate need for honking and as a result, have used horn only 5 times in last 2 years (2 out 5 were accidental). Some notes/observations/thoughts:

- Had made a mental note that I will use horn only when I can't control my vehicle (car/bike)
- Have patience, no one wants to rest on road (unless it's an animal)
- Changing one's path is far easier than blowing horn & expecting others to change their path to make way for you
- Once, one gets used to silence, honking by others not only gets annoying but also feels offensive/insulting at times
- First few days of not using a horn are difficult, however it gets easier as one persists with it

Your initiative is well appreciated! I wish you stress free times ahead.

Just one word of caution with regards to the quoted point. Please make sure that you look around you and make sure that you wouldn't cause an accident, before changing your path.

Duly Noted.
That point is derivative of 'Easier to change self than others'.
