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?

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...
