From the U.S. Patent office, an invention to take a little of the sting out of car honking.
Honkette courtesy horn
Document Type and Number:
United States Patent 20040036580
This variable decibel level horn seeks to solve the particular problem caused by and associated with the use of the current vehicle horn. The unintentional outcome is that the person being honked at becomes irate and aggressive toward the person honking at them. This device solves this problem by producing a lower decibel sound that is less irritating to the driver being honked at. Sometimes in traffic it becomes necessary to honk at a motorist or pedestrian who has become pre-occupied. At this time to get this or her attention it becomes necessary to sound the vehicle’s horn. This irritates the driver sometimes to the point of the so-called “road-rage” condition. With this device, the sounding of a lower decibel horn or even a completely different tone or sound has a more calming effect on the individual. This invention is designed to get the other person’s attention without the overkill of such a loud horn.
