What makes car horns so crucial?

When driving, most people rely on visuals. However, visuals are not always sufficient. For instance, driving through blind bends or in dense fog requires the use of sound to warn other road users of your presence or of potential dangers. Therefore, when visibility is impaired, using a car horn to signal your presence to others is essential.

When to use your car horn

- When your vehicle is in motion

- When you need to let other drivers know that you are approaching around a bend

- When your vehicle is obscured by something (such as fog), making it difficult for other drivers to see you

- To prevent a potential accident

- To warn a driver or pedestrian of a potential danger

When not to use your car horn

Don't "toot" your horn:

- When greeting someone you know

- When your vehicle is parked or stopped at a light

- To hurry up other drivers

- Between 11.30 p.m. and 7 a.m. (except in cases of imminent danger)
