There are many parts of an automobile people overlook when discussing the overall safety of the vehicle. Airbags and seatbelts are almost always properly maintained, but there are also other aspects of a car that are just as important to keeping motorists safe on the road. One of these is the car horn. A car’s horn plays a very important role in warning other motorists of their presence or possible risks. To make sure your vehicle is fit for the road, you need to ensure your horn is working properly.

Car Horns and the Law
Most vehicles are required to have some sort of horn that sounds at a particular frequency or decibel level in order to pass inspection. There are no laws about when and where a regular sized car, SUV, or truck has to use their horn, but there are some regulations on when commercial truck drivers are required to use it.
Many people choose to use their horn out of frustration or road rage, but they should only be used to warn other drivers of a potential accident or collision. Unfortunately, the infrequency of use can leave drivers unaware of problems with a car horn until it is most urgently needed.
If you have been injured in a collision that was caused by a defective or malfunctioning car horn, you may be able to seek financial compensation for vehicle repair costs and medical expenses.
