    In a lot of places around the world, the car horn isn't an aggressive sign. In the Philippines, it's usually two or three short beeps that mean "I'm coming, you need to get out of the way or be hit.".

    Also, he seems like a really good guide.

    • PacMonster FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      ...I mean in general when anybody honks a vehicle horn it means, "I'm coming, get out of the way or be hit". True of the United States as well.

    • TheRTV FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Round Peg in Square Hole

      Not really. In America it's mostly - I just got cutoff, so let me hold my horn down with my right hand, wave my left hand middle finger out the window, and shout curse words at this person. For the most part, if people are walking, then cars will slow down. My time in the Philippines, cars didn't slow down or stop for you until the very last minute. Although no one's ever driving that fast over there.

      Ditto that officially no where a car horn is an aggressive sign. It is a sign of warning to prevent vehicle accidents.


      The fact that it can be abused as a form to aggravate someone does not eliminate it's soul purpose and original sign.


      So please if someone is a tourist that comes to the US do not hesitate on using your car horn to prevent an accident because you're under the misconception it's disrespectful to Americans.

    If only more people in England could speak as well as that guide. I gave up trying to understand taxi drivers a long time ago, the most frustrating thing is it feels like they're not even trying, and they don't understand me either and my speech is clear and concise.

    Don't know about his other facts but the Indian Railways Employer State doesn't check out. According to what I'm reading, Indian Railways employs about 1.4M people in #8 world wide. #1 and 2 are the US and Chinese militaries at 3.5M and 2.3M. Largest private enterprise is Walmart in the #3 slot at 2.1M.

    I included the weforum.org link just because it mentions that myth so I'm wondering if it was once true but has since changed.
