use it only when im stopped. never when im moving cos that means taking hands of steering wheel => lose control..not good.

use it to tell ppl to move or watch out or ish like that

To let SUV drivers know that I am there when I see they want to change lanes without looking.

I am actually contemplating installing a train horn on the separate circuit so I can unleash 150 db of fury next time. I want those guys to be afraid and look over their left shoulder for the rest of their life!

Am I too bitter on the subject?

Well, IF I remembered it exsisted in time, it would be to tell a driver they're being stupid... like, "um, stupid, someone's already here". I'm usually too busy avoiding them to remember to honk! Afterward I ALWAYS think, I should've honked! Too late now......

It's NEVER too late to honk! Sometimes, I'll honk two weeks later and scream "THIS ONE IS FOR YOU LADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*"







*And by "lady," I mean that person who cut me off two weeks earlier.

Aren't you glad Honda did away with the horn buttons?! Stiller's horn buttons are the size of my pinky! (who said size wasn't important??) :LMAO:

... early '80s at night on an isolated stretch of interstate headed out of Columbus toward Atlanta, a carload of goofballs are tailgating 'Jim' with their high beams on. Finally they pass . . .only to slow down such that 'Jim' passes them. This cycle repeats until the 3rd time they pull beside 'Jim' while passing, 'Jim' is ready with his 357 magnum. He holds the revolver outside the driver window, points it straight up, and BOOM !!! along with a 3-foot green powder flash from the barrel tip in the darkness. The goofballs probably thought it was a bazooka. The hood off their car almost scrapes the pavement b/c they braked so hard and, after considerable swerving, their headlights fade far behind.
(Glad I wasn't there!)

i have gotten use to the size of them...

and by the way, it's not the size that matters, it's all in how you use them....
