I have decided that the horn on my vehicle is not nearly loud enough. People just seem to ignore it sometimes, and that causes me a great deal of frustration. I recently found out that some people use train horns, and mount them on their trucks. That would really get somebody’s attention, and I think that it is a direction that I want to go in. I found a site, http://www.trainhornsunlimited.com, that sells train horns, and they have a lot of different models.
It seems that there is a lot of variability in how loud the train horns are, depending on how much you are willing to spend. I do not need to get anything that is ridiculously loud, because I do not want to damage my own hearing. But I do want something that will draw a lot of attention, and make it very clear that I want somebody to move on.
I have a lot of issues with the drivers in this area, and I do not know why people have to drive so slow at times. It is baffling to me. If the speed limit says a certain speed, then I am pretty sure that you should try to drive that speed. It is just common sense. But some people seem to lack common sense entirely. As such, they are going to be up for a rude awakening, when I start to use my new train horn to voice my displeasure with their speed. I can see it being useful in a lot of other situations as well. I am also kind of excited about having such a horn, because really, the horn on my truck at the moment, is not that loud at all. I wish it was louder, but I think that a train horn will make for a nice upgrade.
