1. ascertain where the noise is coming from.
2. ascertain why the horn is being blasted.
3. take appropriate evasive action.
2. continue to punt your oversize (big car, little dick) piece of s#*t across a busy road.
this happened to me today. driving along, right lane, approx 60kmh, and there, attempting to cross a busy intersection (walter road at the galleria) without looking to his right, was some bloke so old i think he may have been dead. well, instead of looking and then giving way to oncoming traffic, mr. shotforbrains just doddles his POS in front of me. i hit the brakes hard, the ABS gets a fine workout, one hand on the horn, and what does he do???? he keeps coming.
i have to say this, if it wasnt for the ABS, i would have hit him. the brakes on the XR6 are excellent. if i had been driving my fiesta, i would have slammed into the side of him.
i would suggest that in future, he takes the slightly longer route (100m more) out of the shopping centre and uses the traffic lights. or, alternatively, he could employ a more conventional method and look where he is going. not just straight ahead, but sometimes side to side.
my hatred of four wheel drives is well known, so i will leave that topic right there.
