PULLED OVER FOR WHAT!!!!! IN FLORIDA...

I was on a main road in the left hand turning lane waiting to take a left hand turn with another car in front of me also waiting to turn. We had a green light but not the arrow. So we were waiting for on coming traffic to pass. All of the on coming traffic went by and it was all clear. The car in front of me did not move and after about 3-4 seconds I beeped my horn (just a quick beep, I did not lay on the horn) after I beeped the car took the left and I followed. As we took the left I saw a cop to my left with waiting to go straight. He did a uturn and followed me and I wondered if he was after me. The lights came on and he pulled me over. He asked me for my reg and insurance and told me that he pulled me over for an illegal use of a horn. WOW! I had no idea you could not use the horn in that case. He did not give me a ticket, I think because when he ran my info he saw the last time I had a speeding ticket was 1988. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

He should have pulled the guy in front of you over for holding up traffic.

The horn is there to warn someone on something important (usually to help avoid an accident). You can't use the horn to notify someone to go faster or to "wake up."

About the worst story that I have heard. Did he say what the horn was supposed to be used for? Sounds like a bad seed...

It appears it IS a crazy law in Florida about using the horn other than warning" for safety. This was probably one of those trick-f**k questions that was on his traffic officer exam.

Quote:
316.271 Horns and warning devices.

(1) Every motor vehicle when operated upon a highway shall be equipped with a horn in good working order and capable of emitting sound audible under normal conditions from a distance of not less than 200 feet.
(2) No horn or other warning device shall emit an unreasonably loud or harsh sound or a whistle.
(3) The driver of a motor vehicle shall, when reasonably necessary to ensure safe operation, give audible warning with his or her horn, but shall not otherwise use such horn when upon a highway.
(4) No vehicle shall be equipped with, nor shall any person use upon a vehicle, any siren, whistle, or bell, except as otherwise permitted in this section.
(5) It is permissible but not required that any vehicle be equipped with a theft alarm signal device which is so arranged that it cannot be used by the driver as an ordinary warning signal.
(6) Every authorized emergency vehicle shall be equipped with a siren, whistle, or bell capable of emitting sound audible under normal conditions from a distance of not less than 500 feet and of a type approved by the department, but such siren, whistle, or bell shall not be used except when the vehicle is operated in response to an emergency call or in the immediate pursuit of an actual or suspected violator of the law, in which event the driver of the vehicle shall sound the siren, whistle, or bell when reasonably necessary to warn pedestrians and other drivers of the approach thereof.
(7) Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, a trolley may be equipped with a bell, and the bell is not required to be used only as a warning device. As used in this subsection, the term "trolley" includes any bus which resembles a streetcar, which is powered by overhead electric wires or is self-propelled, and which is used primarily as a public conveyance. (8) A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a nonmoving violation as provided in chapter 318.
