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?

Most people are texting today. That means they drift into your lane now. Happens constantly. You see 90% of the cars in front of you doing weird things. That's because they are texting.

I now delight in tooting my horn . I plan on getting a powerful horn this spring. I plan on wearing that horn out. Funny before this texting madness, I never ever tooted. In fact I looked down my nose at people who tooted. Now I lay on the horn. Which in todays world is every 5 minutes.

often honk when I pass my barber's place, but never if there's anybody nearby who might mistake it for a scolding... on occasion, will beep it a couple times if I think somebody's deep in la la land, and also, if extraordinarily bad driving -- inattentive, usually -- endangers the population as a whole...
