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?

I'm ordering a new Fiamme El Grande horn to update my stock horn. The stock horn is too polite and wimpy. A wimpy European horn. I want a horn that will blast that weaving texter/iphone gabber into the next county.
