NY cabs-I broke my damn horn b/c of those damn yellow cabs

One of them cut me off (not unusual)-but this one nearly ran me into another cab. I smashed my horn in so bad, it never sounded the same. It sounded like it should have came from a truck or something...

Warranty covered the repair, so all was well

What? is that a serious answer? The horn is located on the steering wheel so you never had to take your hands off.

I love my truck horns.

I want to get some Train horns for it. That way I can give idiots with their heads up their butts a heart attack.

Fix world problems one HONK at a time

Plus...they see the grill of the Tundra and mess themselves

I used my horn on the idiots who were in town for the sugarbowl and aimlessly walked in the street.

I seem to use my horn a lot here in new orleans. I've little patience for the pokeyness of the drivers here.

hmmm where to start i use it when people dont look and try to get into my lane, when people are on thier phones and dont know how to do 2 things at the same time so they drive 25 mph & start delaying traffic, and when they're looking in the mirror and the light turns green i give them 5 seconds then a honk =)

ME TOO!!! omg im the same... lol all i do is just change lanes if possible, if not possible, slow down... and then im thinking... "F*CK! I should have honked" other than that, i just honk to say, "Green means go, not stare at the cup holder or text a friend"

I managed to scare an old lady so bad while locking my car remotely that she dropped her bag and started cussing at me. That was the happiest day of my life.

Anyone play with the idea of using train-horns? I've seen some videos on youtube after bruceleroy pointed it out to me, but I can't shake the feeling that they would somehow kick ass, no matter how immature and stupid it is.

And you are proud of that? Don't you have a silent arm mode? Why didn't you use that?

I don't use mine much.

I only use it to alert the idiot drivers that don't see my truck. I love seeing their face when they remove the cell phone and see my Tundra 2 inches from their stupid car b/c they can't look when making lane changes.
