Re: Use the ALARM sound for the horn?
You're right Dan, it would be loud. I think there are 2 problems with this idea.
1.) The only sound more universally ignored than a vehicle horn is a car alarm. Think about it.
2.) We are conditioned to recognize certain sounds for what they are. Train horns are a good example. When you hear one you know what it represents and you start looking for the train. Sirens, fire alarms in buildings, etc. same thing. I would be afraid that sounding the alarm as the horn would just confuse others and be pretty much ignored.
