gilbertguy, Try driving in Minnesota, I've never 'needed' to use my horn and I rarely ever hear other cars honking at me. I've honked twice at people who didn't go when the light turned green and one other time when a driver cut me off and immediately slow down after I saw the person look right where my car was. ...other than that not too often is one needed. There has been a period of a year in the past where I've never honked my horn before. ...then again we have VERY passive drivers in MN, unfortunetly to the point where they don't look when getting on the highway and expect others to yeild to them, extremely frustrated when they don't join traffic and require me to slow down, regen, or switch lanes(which is not always possible).
just a thought. For those wanting a bit more sound, look down the nozzle of the horn, normally you'll see a screw in the center-if you turn it one way or another you can increase the sound some. Don't go nuts doing this though or you can blow the diaphragm inside.
