Defensive Driving: Now Louder!
We have all heard of defensive driving. Being aware of your surroundings and taking precautions to ensure you have a safe ride is the cornerstone to any defensive driving course. While defensive driving courses sometimes cover proper horn use, what isn't covered enough is making sure that other drivers and pedestrians are just as aware of their surroundings as you are.
With the rise of technology, specifically cell phones, that is easier said than done a lot of the time. One good blast from a good horn will snap someone back to reality quicker than anything else. Be aware of your surroundings, but also be on the lookout for anyone that is obviously not aware of theirs. A pedestrian walking out into the road without looking first, a vehicle swerving into your lane, even animals walking to the road can be avoided with a simple blast of your horn. Here is a testimonial from one of our customers that prevented a collision with some local deer with his horns:
“Making a little PSA right here. Have you ever thought, is my horn loud enough? Would it be cool to have a stronger, longer lasting and life-saving Horn? @hornblasters answers yes to all of that. Earlier tonight on my way home down a back road I came up on 10-15 deer on the road. Without hesitation, I gave the Nightmare Edition hell resulting in, well, 0 deer on the road. Now, say you drive a car or smaller truck that’s more vulnerable to these things. I strongly believe @hornblasters is the answer to saving lives from many, many car accidents. Yes, I probably woke up half the country but put your self in my shoes, it’s raining, you pop up on a group of deer, what happens next could be a life or death decision. Although it’s not 100% guaranteed that buying a train horn will make you invincible to roadside animals, would you run towards a “train”?” - Davis Folmar (Instagram: Davisfolmar_02)
