What's the most common reason you use your car horn?

Is it as a warning, to express your opinion of someone else's driving, or something else?

    To tell a squirrel to either move it or become road pizza (deer are tone deaf).

    You're too nice. I  not only don't warn squirrels, I  swerve in their direction.

    Yeah, but it's when you're trying to hit the squirrel that a tree will jump out in front of you.  And 9 times out of 10, insurance companies will side with the tree and find you at fault.  (for something so big, them trees sure can move!)

    5 Points. 20 if you honk at an old person walking in front of you, and they have a heart attack.

      The San Diego to Minneapolis/Saint Paul route is rife with slow drivers, big rigs, road hogs, etc. There’s not a minute to lose when I’m trying to get to my Snuggie-MacDuggie.

      Please guide me and direct me, Baby. Better yet, just give me the exact address of your place and I’ll pop it into the ol’ GPS.

    To tell the nit-wit ahead of me sitting there on her phone that the light is green.

    That's what I called a wake-up call.  ;)

    Most often, I use it as a warning that another vehicle is coming too close or that a pedestrian is crossing a street against the light and should be more careful.  I will give a brief tap or two if someone isn't paying attention when the light turns green.  I'm not one to stand on the horn unnecessarily.
