While in most of the civilized countries honking is a rare thing, it has become a huge problem in India where most metro cites witness alarming level of  honking contributing to noise pollution. The problem is worst at traffic signals. People start honking without waiting for the signal to turn green. Honking is cause of 70% of the noise pollution in our environment. This problem cannot be solved without making suitable amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act, by which Honking must be made chargeable. And this can be easily done. You wonder how? 

By making it compulsory for vehicle manufactures to incorporate a horno-meter, similar to speedometer and petrol indicator will solve the problem. For every thousand kilometer ride 100 horns be treated as free and the rest be made chargeable. Any traffic police person will be able to see the horn-meter and charge accordingly. The proceed may be send to Ministry of Environment to be used for enhancing the quality of environment. 

This needless to say that any amount of awareness like putting up 'No Honking' banners, distributing pamphlets, stickers and organizing public awareness campaigns is not going to work. If spitting attract a fine of rs 200 and similar amount use charged for smoking in public why honking on hour face should  not be penalized, which is causes annoyance, depression, hypertension, stress, hearing loss, memory loss and panic attacks.

Come stand with me and let us tell the world, Honking is no more free in our India. 

Yours Truly
