I work in Washington DC. I have to leave my house an hour early every morning and leave work an hour later every night in order to avoid sitting in traffic an extra hour. In the long run, I think it evens out. But there is one thing that makes me want to blow a gasket. Horn blowers. Not the, "you're running into me" horn blowers. But the people who have their hands affixed right above the horn at every red light. As soon as the light turns green. "Hoooooonnnnnkkk" Their reflexes are amazing. But it takes me a second longer to get my foot from the brake to the gas pedal and by that time, I'm ripping my hair out. To all the horn blowers in the world, a class in practicing patience might do you good

I actually only use my horn if someone is getting ready to run into me, which doesn't happen often.

You are so right. Patience is very under-rated now a days. Like blowing the horn and making the person in front of you jump and look is going to make them move faster. Best wishes

Yeah, especially when theres a car who has run the red light sitting in front of you. LOL. People really need to bring their blood pressure down a notch. Thanks for responding.

I've wondered my entire life, even as a child, what a "horn blower" thinks they're achieving! LOL If you're sitting in traffic, the guy in front can't move, the guy behind you can't move and you're blowing the horn... does this make someone go OH YEAH... I FORGOT I HAVE "F" FOR FLY! and just jump up out of your way? LOL DUH! Horns are meant to attract attention when perhaps someone doesn't see you or let someone know you're there for them. Beeping them in no way moves other cars to go! lol

I agree with you, people need to learn a bit of patience and realise that getting home 5 minutes later isn't going to make that much difference.
