Honk of cycle , scooter , bike , Rickshaw , car , bus , tempo , truck , Rickshaw’s tampered silencer, heavy generator, public party music, wood cutting, public announcements, FM, people talking laughing and guffawing, phone ringing, hitting of keyboard by a software professional… aaaaaaaaaaarggg…raising decibel levels has created a volcano of ear fluid within the fort of my ears.
Peak time, congested road, vehicles stacked miles behind the traffic signal. Necks craning to see the color change from red to green. The moment the signal turns green, everywhere there is honking. Oh yes..! everybody has had a tired day and wants to get back home or wherever as soon as possible. Honking doesn’t mean that vehicles closer to the signal would give way to the ones at the far end of the stack..! everybody is moving, nobody intends to be on the road for long, stuck in a traffic. Then why honk. It wound not aid in anyway.
'Sound horn please' was a sign usually found on the rear end of trucks. But the note has to be rephrased to ‘NO SOUND HORN unnecessarily’ and put on the rear of every vehicle!
But who would put it in the rear of every rider's head.
