Donít forget that being heard is just as useful as being seen. Iím not talking about loud pipes either. Unlike pipes, a horn projects its noise forward. Using your horn to grab the attention of those around you is good practice. For example, if you notice someone at an intersection that doesnít appear to notice you, use your horn to grab their attention. Or if merging traffic has placed you in their blind spot use your horn to alert the merging traffic to your presence.
