“If cars had an ‘I’m sorry’ horn, there would probably be a lot less road rage”

People honk their car horns as a warning to other drivers. Some call it a “you stupid bastard horn” or a “fuck you horn.”

CraigBailey.net suggested a “sorry horn” on June 28, 2004. “There should be two different horns on cars. A fuck you horn and an I’m sorry horn. That should cover all times a horn should be used” was posted on Twitter on March 30, 2010.

“Wish there was an apologetic car horn for when you cut someone off etc?” was posted on Reddit—Does Anybody Else on January 22, 2012. “Cars should have an ‘sorry’ horn for acknowledging a mistake you made to another driver” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on November 20, 2014.

THE SORRY HORN
By Craig Bailey In General Tech June 28, 2004
Why hasn’t this been invented yet?

My wife came up with this idea about 6 years ago, but I am amazed that it is still not mandatory on every car.

It’s the sorry horn.

Gill thinks that cars should have 3 horns on them: an “excuse me” horn, an “I’m sorry” horn, and a “you stupid bastard” horn.

Vehicles should have an “I’m sorry” horn that we can honk when we know we screwed up.

If there was a second car horn that meant “sorry” I would have used it more than a regular horn in my lifetime

Cars should have two horns, one for when someone is an idiot and one to say sorry.
