    It doesn't say anywhere that you can't honk the horn as an audible communication of intent (middle finger). My argument would be that I had attempted to communicate to the driver ahead of me that I was letting her proceed and when she failed to acknowledge my communication after three attempts with short horn bursts, I gave a longer horn burst thinking that she might not have heard me the previous three times.

    but, if the cop thought it was unreasonably loud & long, who knows?

    depends on how loud your stock horn is...

    The cop was clearly under stress and was not aware of what was transpiring before he approached you.

    the courts bank on people not even showing up. That's how the system works. They send a ticket by mail, then most, people just send it back in w/ a check...

    You might be able to fight it. If the cop doesn't show up, then the judge probably dismisses.

    But, now, you've missed work, & they usually charge you a court filing fee.

    In my past experience, if you show up, the cop is not there. They set a court date on that day and the cop has that date added to his court date schedule. It used to be that first court date was THE date and if the cop didn't show up the case was dismissed but they were losing revenue doing it that way. Think about it: You have to take the time off and maybe the entire day off to go to court the first time only to find out that you have to come back and THEN it's almost a guarantee that the judge will side with the cop. It is impractical for some people so they are forced into a guilty plea. Of course, if you have money then it's not as much of a hardship. That's one reason wealthier people can get away with so much that lower income people cannot.

    Did he time it with his watch?
    Did he measure it in decibels?
    Did he listen to it with headphones among great and mighty sentinels?

    ... sorry, Dr. Suess looms long.

    Never expect people to rationalize anything these days. You will be the fool.

    + Rick is just an angry White-devil male.

    :pirate::usa:

    *edit
    It appears this post needs versions:

    Always expect people to be rational these days. You will be just fine.

    + Rick is fabulous and isn't just everything??

    :pirate::usa:

    There, that for the ones that like to bounce a balloon back and forth to one another.

    The way people drive is just a reflection on how low the general intelligence of Murican society is sinking..........

    I clearly remember cars in subs going on or under the speed limit. Nowadays the sky's the limit. I remember a feeling that we all just threw in the towel around 2008 for some reason on any decency or accountability.

    *edit
    Yea really.

    Also "Murican" just looks like twisted way to mock the patriotic, that's it. Might wanna look into that.
