1. Why does a rail engine hoot to tell the whole town about its arrival and departure ?  The sound be limited to the concerned platform only. 

2. Why should a fast train passing thru a platform hoot to tell the entire town about its passage ? The specific platform alone should have suitable warning system. 

3. Why should an engine waiting at a red signal hoot to inform the authorities ? A mobile phone could be used. 

4. Why should a railway engine passing thru a residential area at night hoot to warn the squatters ? A focussed light beam would be more appropriate. If the hoot is a must, it should be focussed to the line in front.  

5. A hooting code is needed as the old code does not seem amended since 1850, when trains were first introduced in the country.
