I can't recall how much the fine is, but I saw a sign today about 2 blocks from where I live. I wish it was on the block where I live though to maybe deter at least a quarter of the horn-honking. There is SO MUCH horn-honking. How does one go about contacting those in charge of designating where these signs get put up?

That's another frivolous law !

I wish anyone luck enforcing it - People see signs like that and you know what they do? They wail on the horn on purpose, for kicks.

The law is similar to, "No texting and driving". A joke !! Constantly done, and people do not care. They think the law does not apply to them, sadly ...

I'll bet nobody in recorded history was ever given a summons for it...but they SHOULD be.

I actually got a ticket (summons)! But it was a long time ago in the early 1980s. I honked my horn out of frustration (I don't remember the particulars) at the exact moment a policeman happened to be walking by on the sidewalk. This was in Manhattan. He gave me a ticket and he wrote "horn without danger". I can't recall how much the fine was. At the time I felt like I was the only person in the history of NYC to receive such a ticket. I should also mention that I was driving a cab at the time and that may have figured in to his decision to give me the ticket. Don't know.

The people that hold their horn down for 5+ seconds deserve a ticket
The people that honk multiple times behind a car making a left/right turn when there is a pedestrian in the crosswalk deserve a ticket

No need to cause unnecessary noise or warnings. I'm a biker, so hearing a horn causes a bit more warning. Many times I do wish that law was enforced.

Default Bad music fine...

Should be imposed for those who pull up in front of the building blasting techno with the bass turned up so much the car is rattling. However if they are blasting the Doors, Led Zeppelin or Rush they get no fine!

But dear lord, the THUMP, THUMP, THUMP at 3:00 AM makes me want to chuck a shoe at them.....Also yelling up at the windows and being D-bags in general.

I think the only way such a law could be routinely enforced is with traffic cameras that can detect sound and somehow attribute a honk to a particular car--fat chance of that happening.
