as i was uploading some pictures this morning i came across this one and had totally forgotten about taking it. this was taken in new york when we went on vacation over thanksgiving break in 2009. these signs were posted in various places throughout the city and i just loved them! i think every city should enforce such a law. the people in the town i live in are horrible about constantly honking their horns. probably one of the first things i noticed when we moved here. if you are sitting at a stop light and you don't floor the accelerator as soon as the light turns green the person behind you, in front of you and to the left or right of you is honking their horn to remind you that the light has turned green. they honk at you if you are crossing the street, heck they honk at you if you even look like you are about to cross the street. they honk at animals and at kids. and lets not forget about the occasional "get-er-done" boys driving their "get-er-done" trucks that honk at each other, just to be honking, as if their loud exhaust and blaring country music isn't drawing enough attention to themselves as it is. so, in my opinion, instead of raising taxes or whatever it is our government does to collect money for our schools, roads and jails, maybe they should jump on the new york wagon and charge a fine every time a horn is honked! or if anything, just to make a little extra money on the side for our food pantries or other community based services. my town, for one, would immensely benefit from such a law.
and btw, i never really realized how strange of a word honk is until I just repeated it in my head so many times.
