We recently got a car here in Australia, and although we haven’t had it that long, it’s been great. On that note, let’s talk about car horns. (Warning: This post and the video contain strong language.)
I quite enjoy driving—when I know where I’m going. I get lost easily. Thank God for SatNav, am I right? But I digress.
Anyway, driving is fun, especially when you put on some music and sing along. Then sometimes some asshole ruins your driving experience by driving like, you guessed it, an asshole. That’s when road rage ensues.
Luckily, I think I may have stumbled upon the solution. Watch this: (Only the second joke is about car horns, but the whole thing is funny.)
We need more car horns to communicate a whole range of emotions on the road. Why aren’t we funding this?
I would actually add a few horns to those that Owen Benjamin discussed. For instance, there needs to be a horn for when someone cuts in right in front of you. Not like a “fuck you” horn, more like a “dude, that is not cool” horn. Then we need one for people who don’t use their indicators (turning light if you’re American).
Most importantly, I feel we need a car horn for people who text while driving. I want that one to sound like gunshots. This horn will also ensure that pedestrians get the hell out of your way. (I’m kidding—chill out).
Just a side note for all those idiots who text while they drive – how the actual fuck do you think that’s safe? Put down your phone and turn up the music.
In Australia, there are cameras specifically for catching people who text and drive—they get fined and demerit points on their licence. I don’t mean to sound like an old fart, but I think it’s a great idea.
What is the most annoying thing while driving for you? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading. Insert ‘thank you’ horn here.
