I wish there was some way i could do this:
Install a special horn on my car, which, at the press of a button from inside, will spew out a volley of gaalis in pure punjabi..."oye teri...." etc etc. One, it would spare my throat from going soar,and two, the surprise element for the honkers.
Along with this, would also like to install a camera that would click pictures of those surprised honkers.

Ofcourse i would not be using it too often. Just to get a nice laugh every once in a while....

Green light honking: I do most of the times (not regularly). Auto guys in front of me would never move an inch even afte the traffic signal turns green. Then the only way is to honk at them. And Boy, it works always.

Well i am not a fan of honking whether red or green light. I was lucky last time. There was a stupid autowala decided not to move an inch on green even when the road in front was empty. The timer was getting close to 10 and that freak started moving slowly and all of a sudden he zoomed off and me having this petrol head, even i accelerated as the timer still has 6 seconds remaining. To my luck or bad luck a stupid biker on the opposite side tried to sneak off in this small gap (he was having red then) and came in front of my car and escaped just inches as i was just in 20s or 30s speed and thanks to vacuum assisted disc brakes, i managed to stop in safe distance but that guy was shocked to death But this left me in the centre of the junction and the only option was to ahead and luckily i managed to do get off the junction safely.

That was a nice lesson taught by you, i happy you got away from road rage situations. I too once got pissed off by a two wheeler guy, who knocked me from behind and scratched my new car, i overtook him near the next signal and parked my car ahead of him and went and pulled his key from the ignition and gave him my piece of mind. He apologised profusely and i let him go since he was a student, it was pure rush of blood i suppose

Certainly don't want to turn this into a "riders vs drivers" thing, but just to give another perspective, in my case, it's usually my bike stopping at a red light, with some car chappie honking away behind me. And again, as soon as the light turns green- I mean I doubt even Schumi could react that fast, what does he expect me to do? Probably wants me to start moving even before the light turns green.

The funny thing is that after all that honking, the cars usually move pretty slow after the lights turn green.

Well said, we are not in the blame game, i always try to leave some space in front of me in signals for bikers, i am sure bikers take off faster than cars and it gives me a feeling strangely that i am being provided escort. It all depends on the vehicle condition and driving ability, if it is new and well maintained cars have tremendous pick up.

TSK you gave me the splits man...excellent. Wonder what we petrol car drivers can do in this case? Revving this car will only hurt the engine :(.

I used to ride almost 50 kms a day before I got the car. Honking at a green light also is not done. Would people want to just stand there even at a green light, even they have to get somewhere dont they? Also, sometimes new drivers tend to stall the car, honking puts them under pressure and they make mistakes. Have seen this first hand.

A small burst is acceptable, not everytime though.

Oh Yeah and thread rated 5 stars.

At times the signal is faulty. It quickly changes to green and back to red again when it was supposed to remain red. That happened to me once and as I was the only one to respond quickly enough, mine was the only car that passed but for the last few feet I had to accept the courtesy of other drivers who gave way for me to pass as that was how quickly the light turned from green to red.

Ever since then, I wait at the green light for a second to make sure the signal isn't faulty and to make sure the other drivers (the ones for whom it is a daily route know which side of traffic is supposed to go before the light turns green) are starting to move too.

That's very well said. I happens to me too on most occasions when I am riding my Dio.

People just need to be patient on the roads. God knows what they achieve by saving a second or two.
