Motorist in India whether it is four wheeler , two wheeler or goods carrier run by either literate ,illiterate, effluent class, middle class or poor drivers ,  use Horn with such frequency that it has become nightmare for people living in residential complexes near either main roads or even interior roads either in Metro Cities, Tier two ,three or even villages.

People in India by and large has no patience or civic sense and it shows in their behavior across all situation. Here when we speak about Horn Honking, motorist has either no reason to honk or they just honk by way of habit. Take for an example while waiting at Signal, the moment signal turns green, everyone starts honking as it is going to be last signal before end of the world & the person who is before your vehicle in your lane is sleeping & has no need to cross the signal. How do you explain such horn honking. Other major reason why people honk is to warn the people or vehicle who may come across their path as the road belongs to them only and they never walk on road. This is true specially for two wheeler rider & they drive left right & center without bothering about lane or even their own safety.

I have seen two wheeler riders  continuously honking horn even when the entire road in front of them is empty. This shows their attitude of honking with out absolutely any reason. While the three wheeler auto drivers honk horn to attract their potential passenger from distance of more than few hundred meter.   

Such a law to curb Honking , would make people more responsible while driving , they would become more patient and may be even road rage can be reduced with such enforcement.

While in many parts of Developed world Horn honking is considered extremely bad manners & is to be used in some emergency only , In India it is a habit of excessive use of horn, which needs to be changed .

As in India, unless there is a law which curbs use of Horn , people will keep on doing same thing.

It is a Process and unless implemented with backing of law it will be impossible to enforce on people.

If this petition is even read by people which at least make them think next time they drive & use their horn ?
