You're a smart man, as long as your plan works!

So, here goes: I find comments such as those posted in response #14 to be offensive and an attempt to belittle anyone who may have posted comments about overloaded towing or speed related comments. Posts like that don't serve to advance the topic, rather they only serve as an "attempt to insult" those to whom they are directed in an ambiguous way. "Backhanded insults" or "stirring the pot" are two descriptions that come to mind.



While everyone is certainly entitled to feel any way they choose, when it comes to attempts to belittle members by associating their beliefs or actions about one topic by "lumping" them with other topics serves no purpose other than an apparent attempt to create animosity and/or to insult other members by "jabbing them about an unrelated topic" on the forum.



That is not the purpose of this forum and is not the "friendly atmosphere" we wish to provide.



Two "adult oriented, mature responses" have been posted before mine, and I appreciate the thoughtful, restrained responses.



Let's get this thread back on track, talking about air horn installation, not about insulting people about being members of the weight police/speed police in some attempt to discredit the thread or its contributors.


Was not meant to say or do anything except what was said. Some people pick and choose which laws to follow. I see "train horns" are another sacred cow on this forum.

I can't believe how freakin sensitive you guys are.

There are clearly members who can say most anything, yet others... not so much.

I have several friends/relatives in LE and I consulted them before purchasing my set of horns. I don't use the horn for childish pranks or scaring people. I agree with xrated on the obvious differences. It boils down to common sense IMHO.


Nope, never been challenged. Just making observations.

I also like to "poke a barking dog through a fence with a stick" on occasion just to keep things lively, but not to the point of upsetting a number of members. All things in moderation. Loud horns compared to grossly overweight F-150's is kind of a stretch. Outlook, I think you're "poking this dog" just to rile a few people and you're succeeding. But I don't think your success is worthy of merit.

In my opinion, Outback's comments simply have no merit. As a guess, nothing factual, probably 99% of the population chooses to abide by some laws and ignore others.....the "pick and choose" that he is referring to. I'm sure that everyone that drives a car/truck/whatever has gone over the speed limit at one time or another....maybe not 20 over, but at least a few miles over, and technically that is breaking the law. The point is, as flybouy and others, including me have suggested their use for situations that involve getting someone's attention to possibly prevent an accident. Will I use them when I'm driving and there is no one else around and I just want to hear them......of course I will. Will I do it going through a residential area or late at night while folks are trying to sleep....NOPE! It all boils down to common sense and intent....and that is what is important to me. It may technically be illegal to use them, but if it helps protect me and mine from an accident, then so be it.
