What is the purpose of your horn?

To annoy other people
To let your friends know that you have arrived
To warn
To play along with the music

i picked "to warn" because there was no option for "let other drivers know how fucking pissed off you are"

My answer isn't listed: To let other people know that they've annoyed me. :-)

I think this is the correct abstract for an article in The New Yorker that talks about driving in China, specifically, the huge increase in it.

Apparently, Chinese drivers use their horns to talk. There's MANY code honks, but the only one I can remember is a series of very fast, short honks, maintained for about 10 seconds. It means "I am freaking out because I am stuck in traffic!"

"To warn the driver in front of me that my Mini Cooper is going to drive up their f*ckin' spine if they don't get off their damn cell phone and notice that the light in front of them is green now."

Yeah. That's the ticket.
