I was driving home with the wife, stopped at a 4-way intersection waiting to make a left turn. When the left signal turned green I started to make my left turn, but a truck coming from the opposite direction thought that his left turn green light meant he could cross the intersection. We nearly had a slow-motion head on...but I saw him coming, braked and laid on the horn. He just went around me and kept going like nothing happened.
The wife asked "What the hell was that!?" I answered "Some dumba$$." She said "No, was that your horn?! It's sounds so...cute..."
I have to admit, I had not hit the horn on this truck before...and I'm a little stunned that it is so wimpy. Reminiscent of the high pitched squeek of an irritated marmot. I'd really like to get something more in-line with a truck horn. When I have to push the Oh-Shiznit-Button I want the other driver to say Oh-Shiznit!
Your suggestions Ladies and Gents? I did search and found the Euro-Horns to be too high pitched for my tastes. I prefer loud but low pitched. More of a honk than a beep if you get my meaning.
