I Honk 1. while overtaking, especially if it is a BMTC bus, which can come to extreme right any moment 2. when I see an "idiot" crossing the road, fully immersed in his/her phone. He/she thinks he/she is walking in a park. 3. when someone carelessly cuts to my lane. 4. at sharp, blind curves (read ghat sections) Otherwise, I mostly don't honk. I have managed certain days with just 2-3 honks, all very short ones, not lasting more than couple of seconds. I always suspected that dangerously driving two-wheelers have piles problem, seeing the way they cut criss-cross on the road, unnecesarily.
