I'm pretty sure honking is a ticketable offense in New York City at this point...maybe someone in NY can back me up on this?

Tons of people lay on their horns in Boston though.

It may be ticket-able but there is not enough paper in the world if they actually started writing tickets to everyone that did honk.

Yes - but tickets are issued by the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (its "noise pollution" afterall), and DEP rarely if ever patrols or enforces this law.

Chicago has more traffic. But drivers in Philly are crazy with the horns. Even when there is very little traffic they still go pretty hard.

It is more a regional thing. East coasters honk more than Midwesterners in general, even Chicago. That is why I voted for Miami. Philly and Boston are right there as well. Chicago drivers really are quiet compared to their eastcoast counterparts.

I think because of the many nationalities that blend together there. Melting pots tend to induce traffic anger, and more honking. Plus, the cabbies.
