    Yeah, I mostly beep people when they've done something stupid/dangerous. It makes me angry, & I'm ok with them knowing it.

    if they don't acknowledge my beeping (or just blatantly don't care), I'd report them for dangerous driving. Obviously only if it was genuinely dangerous, like if I wouldn't want my mum or someone to come across them in a car, I'd rather get the warning of them being a **** out there.

    People press their horn to either alert others of their presence - i.e. if a car appears to be drifting into your lane, you beep so they are aware that you are there. Or they use it to alert other drivers to get a move on. For example, if I was stuck behind a car at a set of traffic lights and the car in front didn't notice the lights were on green - I would beep. I don't know why you're so offended by it? :confused: Or why you keep referring to it as "soft" ...

    The horn is only used for one thing IMO.. driving through a village at 1am in the morning, just to let everyone know you are there.

    Annoys me that drivers in this country is that they take the horn as a form of rudeness (tbh horning at someone is probably considered MORE offensive than swearing at them). It's actually a useful warning a lot of the time, and it's not right that some drivers see it as rude to use it.
