Of course. Exactly.

I enjoy cycling in the countryside. Cycling on roads isn't enjoyable.


I find it is. Very enjoyable.


Roads are for cars.

Is it?

So why did you mention it?

I didn't. I just showed you a report from a link, which was
basically the reporter's opinions.
That's an entertaining wriggle.

State where I mentioned money!
You quoted a foul mouthed **** faced whining little journalist.
Journalists should never ever be trusted.

That is why when I watch news programmes I concentrate on the rolling
ticker=tape at the bottom. That is just news without comment. I can do
without the comments and bloody interviews and all that.

Anybody who pays for news is contributing to the slimy little ****es..
One day soon they'll all go out of business.

Unfortunately no.
There e two many people hanging on every word of foul commentary they
can that the news stations make heaps from the associated advertising
they can sell.


I disagree. A lot of them are starting to beg for payment or stopping us
using adblockers, they're in financial trouble.

Er no. It means "You ****ing arsehole, why the hell didn't you
indicate?!"
A horn conveys no information so how are your targets supposed to
know what your problem is?
Well let me see, Mr Smith turns right at a roundabout without
indicating, and someone correctly pulls in front of him, then
sounds their horn when they see he's about to collide with them.
He can then look up the highway code or whatever and find out why
the other car had the right of way.

Just because Mr Smith is not indicating right it is not correct for
AN Other to pull out on a whim. Too many hims and thems. Explain who
is doing what and who ends up in front of whom.
If you don't indicate right at a roundabout, you do not have the
right to turn right. WTF are you doing turning without informing
other road users as to where you intend to go?

When following marked lanes indication is not necessary. Indication is
only useful when making lane changes or where there is ambiguity. And
I live in the south east where most people adapt to cope with each
others' behaviour without going into a hissy fit at every opportunity.

Please explain your scenario in more detail.

Now think of a roundabout without lanes. Or maybe one with two entry
lanes and three exits. And don't assume that cars at the other side
can tell what lane you're in.


Still not enough information. Every roundabout is different. No mention
of timing and you don't say which driver ends up aiming at the other
driver's doors.


This is precisely why everyone should indicate.

No indicator means you're going straight ahead, end of story.


Straight on from where? Once a roundabout is more than a certain size
the relationship between entry and exit becomes completely irrelevant.

You seem to be just trying to make a point rather than trying to work
out how to use a roundabout in the most efficient way for the
circumstances you find at the time.


Depending on the size, I indicate left when I leave, and indicate right if
I'm going around it a fair distance.

It is not intended to convey the message: "Get out of my way
or there might be a crash". I such circumstances, you are
supposed to slow down or stop.
I don't, I drive as close as possible to the vehicle without
touching them, this scares them into not doing it again,
Have you ever followed up the result of your education with the
individuals concerned?
Yes, I often have people banging on my door yelling at me. I had a
bus driver sacked for doing just that, after not indicating and
deciding he had priority over cars at a junction.

So the answer is that you don't know that your education works.
Try that again in English.

It's good enough.

I told you that a bus driver was sacked due to his inabilities. And
you reply with the nonsense, "So the answer is that you don't know that
your education works" - what is that supposed to mean?


A sacking is not evidence of altered behaviour.


Well it's altered the average behaviour of local bus drivers, because we
have one less aggressive ****.

OCD is a DISORDER. Get it fixed.

Perhaps you mean something like this? It is is harder seen from a
driver's perspective than from a high mounted camera. No need.
Adjust speed according to what can be seen.

Incidentally, the bridge has a 2t mgw limit so several drivers
shown here are breaking the rules - plus many others plus a council
official with a Range Rover that knows full well.
WTF are you on about? I can clearly see what's coming the other way,
that is not a blind bridge whatsoever. Unless it's because the
camera is higher up than most drivers.

Cast your eyes up a few lines...

Try waffling less. So what was your point? I never hoot at those. I
just slow down.


I said above "It is is harder seen from a driver's perspective than from
a high mounted camera" and "no need" [to hoot].

Then you pondered about the height of the camera. Don't complain about
waffle when you can't follow through properly.


Why did you post a meaningless link with the image taken from the wrong
angle?

If the horn was not so unpleasant, the administrators that defined
the 90dbA standard understood physics and the pad on the steering
wheel was force sensing to allow the driver to add expression it
might be more acceptable.
What do you mean? Are you suggesting it should be louder if you
press harder?

Quieter if tapped softly.

That would just make them go unnoticed. A horn should always be as
loud as possible to inform the arsehole that he failed to drive
correctly.


Shrug. If that is what you want then press it normally.


I don't have the option to change the volume.

Since horns are rarely, if ever, used for their legallt-intended

a C&U requirement, they should be banned except for the ones used on
official emergency vehicles.

I once used horn to try and stop a van driver from reversing
into me. The HC seems to allow that.


Alerting him to your presence is the specific purpose of a horn; that
much has been said already.


It is a special case when stationary.

Using the horn for its proper purpose is a very rare occurrence.

It's hard to escape the conclusion that you're just supposed to stop
in order to avoid a collision.

The original HC in the 1930's said "sounding your horn does not give
you right of way or absolve you from the duty of taking every
precaution to avoid an accident". Unfortunately this seems to have
disappeared from the modern version. "warn[ing] other road users of
your presence" is not particularly helpful.


There's still the law about driving without due care and attention
and/or without due consideration for other road users.

The requirement that a horn should not be used when stationary
seems a bit strange because (offhand) I can't think of a circumstance
nowadays where the horn could be useful while moving. Perhaps the
requirement came from the days when motor vehicles were hard to
control and there were few of them so people were not used to their
presence. Now, people use roads with the full expectation that
something big and fast operated by a psychopath is round the next
corner. Also, bulb air horns were more acceptable than the nasty
electric objects fitted today.


The obvious use whilst moving would be when approaching ths "summit"
of a hump-backed bridge or a sharp bend.


Perhaps you mean something like this? It is is harder seen from a
driver's perspective than from a high mounted camera. No need. Adjust
speed according to what can be seen.

https://goo.gl/maps/9MSMX69BxzM2


Not hump-backed enough to need it. You can easily see traffic
approaching from the opposite direction, even if driving a Triumph Spitfire.

In order for the horn-sounding to be even semi-valid, the bridge really
needs to be a narrowing of the road as well (which the Italian one was).

https://goo.gl/maps/R48YMSxzjQk


That one is narrow, but you can still see the oncoming traffic. Sounding
the horn would not serve a useful purpose.

Incidentally, the bridge has a 2t mgw limit so several drivers shown
here are breaking the rules - plus many others plus a council official
with a Range Rover that knows full well.


There's no sign saying so. Is this an older Google photo?

A multi-storey car-park near here had a down-ramp with a give way line
at the bottom of it, with the posibility of traffic approaching from
the left. A sign on the wall said "Sound Horn". I never did.


Weird.


Exactly. I bet someone thought it was clever, though.

There were houses near the location and the occupants were as entitled
to reasonable efforts to keep down noise as anyone else is.


Well done you.

Likewise, an Italian friend used to sound his car horn on a
hump-backed bridge near his village. But the bridge had a house
adjacent to it. He would never listen to my remonstrations; I gained
the impression that he...


[...revelled in it.]

Sorry, missed that out last time.

On a bicycle, the voice can be useful because the approach behind
pedestrians or horse riders is otherwise silent. When there is
insufficient clearance to get past without having their awareness I
always slow to match their speed before announcing my presence.


That sort of sounds OK and in keeping with the HC instructions on
motor-vehicle horns.


Except motor vehicles already make so much noise that they don't require
embellishment. Making pedestrians aware of my presence when I approach
behind them isn't needed in the car as it is on the bike.

I still believe that it would be better if car-horns were simply
banned. The nuisance caused by mis-use far outweighs the weight of the
odd anecdotal case for their use for safety-related purposes.


Indeed. At most, such "safety-related purposes" could only cover small
insurance claims and can't possibly have effect on personal safety.

If the horn was not so unpleasant, the administrators that defined the
90dbA standard understood physics and the pad on the steering wheel was
force sensing to allow the driver to add expression it might be more
acceptable.


Is that the C&U standard? I never knew that.
