How often do you honk your horn?

Spokane used to have a reputation as a place where people were pretty polite when it came to using their car horns.

I'm not sure local drivers are quite so restrained these days. But how about you?

What does it take to get you to really blast your horn? (I am not referring here to the gentle tap on the horn when the driver ahead of you has gone 10 seconds without acknowledging that the light has turned green.)

A) I'll do it to prevent a collision. B) I'll do it to startle a cyclist. C) I'll do it to punish another driver for the slightest encroachment on what I consider to be my space. D) I'll do it to register my agreement or displeasure with a bumper sticker. E) I'll do it as a random brainless affirmation of virility or inebriation. F) Other.
