Bay Area ppl Stop honking!

Seriously, why do you have to slam on the horn and hold it for 10sec??? You are just making pedestrians annoyed. Even if the other person is the stupidest driver or pedestrian does honking really make you happy?
Honestly, I can understand drivers who make mistakes and get yelled at, but those who honk.... come on...

      OP
      I’ve been there. But that’s how it is in NY. I feel in the Bay Area it’s worsening.

      OP
      I’m not from either of those countries, and I take Caltrain every day. I get irritated by people like you who honk stupidly. It seems not only can you drive but also can’t read. Just read, it’s disturbing for pedestrians and people sitting in the offices, you honkingclown.

    Me whenever I hear someone lay on the horn in the Bay Area: “Welp, that person’s not from here.”

      OP
      I don’t drive here. But maybe you don’t know there are other means to react to a situation than honking;) A car is not a toy, learn to react not honk like a btich.

    Seattle has this figured out. I rarely hear horns.

      Mostly because everyone is driving a Prius 10 mph below the speed limit, in the left lane.

    yes. the other person is not only stupid, but also put his/her and my life in danger. worth 10 sec horn. if i dont warn you for 10 sec, u may get hit by the stupid driver while walking.

    I feel like I hardly ever hear horns here. People are so respectful! In fact as a pedestrian I find it annoying how respectful people are(!) If I've decided to cross the street after a single car, and I show any inclination toward street crossing (especially if not at an intersection *gasp*) then then car will often slowly slow right down, stop, and wave me across, which saves neither of us time compared to just continuing on their merry way. (This is kind of South Bay specific).

    Noise pollution for pedestrians - obviously those sitting in a quiet car don't get it.

    Don't listen to OP. Honk more, not less. People do the craziest shit on these roads, and if you don't honk, you're telling everyone around you that it's OK.

      Honking is an emergency signal not a way of communication. Seems you read it on Facebook to honk more??)

      Honking is a way to make noise come out of the car. It means whatever we want it to mean.
