Stop Honking at Elderly People, Handicapped Individuals, and Pregnant Women

By Edited Jul 5, 2015 3 11

Remember . . . your vehicle is a heavy-duty machine.

I wish I've witnessed an impatient driver honk indiscriminately at a person. How about honking at anything that is in the way? It is possible that a domestic animal walks across a street too slowly for a driver. I think it would be fun to see others react strongly when their progress on the road is impeded.

I Honked, Oh my God!!

All year long during the year 2010, I've never honked while I was driving. Actually, I was very close to achieve that. I honked someone sometime in November for a long period of time (one minute). That person was not moving his car for a long time. I've figured the person wasn't sure which way to go. Thus, I honked without keeping my left hand off the car horn. The person I honked at isn't young. He didn't look like a young. He probably has 10 to 15 years to go to be considered an elderly. Thus, I better be more patient and graciously in 2011 and not honk at elderly people.

That Pedestrian Deserved it

I've honked at a pedestrian before. That happened about 5 to 6 years ago. I wanted to hurry up and turn left before the stop light became red. It would be red for a long time. I couldn't believe the guy was walking in front of my car to get to the sidewalk. He was jaywalking, but he definitely didn't deserve to be honked at. At the time, I should have patience.

Go on a Recon Mission and Always Be Gracious

In my opinion whenever someone doesn't know what decision to make when behind the wheel, the person should scout the area first to check which driving manuever should be made. People should be grateful that they are capable to drive. They should not take for granted for being able to have some freedom that comes with driving a car.

My Resolution for 2011

My goal for 2011 that is centering around driving in the United States is do not honk due to myself being impatient. I think it is reasonable to honk to alert other drivers. Honking can be seen as a way of communicating. A problem I would foresee with it is the other driver may not be able to find why another driver honked. That could lead the situation to be more dangerous as the driver could possibly be confused. Nevertheless, people should honk as an attempt to do something good.

I believe that if you have time to honk, you have time to brake ... and show a little courtesy. I hope many people read your article!

freedom, your userID indicates that you are from Los Angeles. How in the heck can you go a whole year without honking a minimum of 50 times in LA? :-P

LOL . . . very funny. I actually live about 8 miles away from the area incorporated as Los Angeles.

The biggest factor that I didn't honked at least 50 times during last year is that I hardly drive. I dislike driving, and I am more willing than others to do things to avoid driving.

Thank you for reading and writing your first ever comment on one of my articles, dadbintheadmin. Time for me to read yours.

What's it like driving in Houston? Are you allowed to make right turns when the stoplight is red?

I don't honk at anyone, and I have learned to be patient after an accident nearly took my life almost 10 years ago. Too many drivers are out on the road in a hurry to die. It is not worth it anymore to me. From someone who used to easily do 90mph on the interstate to get to work

WOW!!! 90 . . . that's awesome. I also used to do 90. However, I believe you live in an area with a lower population density. So, I'm thinking it's not too bad for you to be in a hurry.

I'm glad you learned a lesson and be more patient. I'm glad you're alive to write good articles for us to read.

That might just be a good idea to not honk when you are impatient.
