One of the first things that I noticed, when I moved to Illinois, from NY/NJ is that people here DON'T HONK! At first, I thought the cars here were not equiped with horns! My question is, when do you think it most appropriate to HONK your horn?

Used it today when this jacka** swerved into my lane two feet in front of me because he/she didn't want to be behind a car only going the speed limit.

Yes, if necessary, to get someone's attention i.e. sitting at a green light, merging into my lane, etc.
