When to Use Your Vehicle's Horn

Communication, communication, communication! It’s an essential part of driving on the road. Your vehicle's horn is one way you can communicate on the road.  It's a useful way to alert other drivers, pedestrians, or cyclists to potential dangers. Using your horn responsibly and in essential situations, is critical to avoid having unnecessary noise and road rage. 

Warning others of danger and to prevent an accident is a good reason to use your vehicle's horn. Usually this is If a vehicle is about to collide with yours, and you need to alert the other driver to prevent an accident. Often this can occur when you see a pedestrian or cyclist in danger of collision. Just use caution not to startle them and cause unnecessary damage. 

Another situation of safely using your horn is to let other road users know you are there when they might not see you. For example there could be a blind curve where someone does not see you. In addition, a distracted driver may need to be gently reminded to focus on the road and driving. 

In emergency situations where you need immediate attention or assistance, such as a medical emergency, a malfunctioning vehicle, or being stranded on the road, you can use your horn within reason to attract the attention of passing motorists.

It is imperative to be a considerate and responsible driver by using your horn for safety and communication purposes only.
