I don't like horns

First, I don't use it much myself.  I get irritated when others (over) use it.

The idea behind horn is - "Be Careful".  It is like a broadcast SOS message.  Why should others be careful, why don't you yourself be careful. To put it in other words, I think the ability to tell others to be careful gives us the luxury of NOT being careful. May be we should just ban horns and learn to drive without this ability. Hopefully once In-Car computers are running Android, we might get to see beyond line of sight and be better informed, or horns might get replaced by inter car communication systems, which one could hack and filter.

  1. Honking is a punishable offence in Mumbai (in 200 mts radius from a red light). I guess they should start in Bangalore as well
