I actually seriously considered the train horns - and Grover makes them. The problem is that they suck a lot of air pressure. In the end, I elected to get something a little more tame.

When I tested the horns yesterday, the neighbors on both sides of me (we are all on acre+ sized lots, heard both of my tests - inside their houses. I'm not really sure that I want something louder than that.

Many of the people driving take the attitude of "they have brakes don't they" when cutting of RVs and trucks. The only thing that protects them is the old saying "God takes care of the drunks and crazies". If we were animals these people would be eliminated by the laws of survival.

Glad you were awake and saved the idiot's life!

Well, I got an unplanned chance to test the new horns this past weekend. While on our way to a Boomer's rally, we were moving from one expressway to another in heavy traffic. In the left of two lanes to bend right, I had been watching in my driver's mirror for those who just have to cut to the head of the line to make the turn with us. I thought that we were far enough around the corner to be safe. We were well past the turn itself when a Nissan pickup cut over part of the unpaved corner, came around us on the shoulder and cut directly in front of us, just as we were starting to pick up speed. I jammed the brake pedal to the floor and went for the horn button in nearly the same reflex action. We stopped about a foot short of a collison but the truck went sideways, obviously because the driver jerked the wheel when he felt the horn blast. He was directly in front of where they are mounted and they were level with his rear window glass so I'm guessing that he got "the full dose."

I'm hoping that he will think twice about pulling such a stupid stunt again. I'm sure that I made an impression. My wife is just glad that I didn't get shot!

I am sure you made a impression, and I bet he made something too. We can only hope.

It's amazing how many people cut off RV's and 18 wheelers. I believe it has to do with the fact that states think you need to know about how drugs and alcohol effect your driving. They need to ask some questions on how long it takes to stop both towing and on slick roads. Give us a break maybe folks can remember when they try and cut us off. Keep your eyes open and be safe.

AND, I bet she was a blonde. That means she wouldn't even notice those air horns, especially a texas blond.
