DIY: If they can't see you.....maybe they will HEAR YOU!!

Its happened to me.....and I bet its happened to you too, SOMEONE, WITH NO BRAIN, NOT LOOKING WHERE THEY ARE GOING, runs out in front of you and isn't even looking where they are going....and you have no where to go but get on the brakes....something tell me they might even be on the PHONE!!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I made a SLIGHT little modification to my car to make it a bit louder so it will be a bit easier to get noticed.





BTW......I have a complete set of instructions I made for the DIY, complete with lots of pictures. They are RIGHT BELOW!

Yeah, That would wake them up! Hopefully they don't have an exaggerated startle response like me though, 'cause I'd probably jump & scream. A less seasoned driver might just make a dumb move like jerking the wheel & lose control of the car. Sooooooooo, use with some caution. But, I like it anyway.

Having heard these in person, I can tell you they are OMG LOUD!

Even when you are prepared to hear them...it makes you jump!

This is just as loud or louder-a whole lot more compact--and a hell of alot cheaper- Just unplug wire from stock horn and plug this one in. I use these on my motorcycle and it is loud.
I got to tell ya....yes those are loud......BUT.....they have a much higher pitch, like LITTLE cars do.

Mine are much deeper....ahhhhh like a SEMI horn....so if they weren't looking.....they may think a tractor trailer is going over them.

Nuke... that's twice you didn't get me. No way was I going to play that turned up..

OK OK last week in the parking lot... I did jump a little, but my head wasn't under your hood like you wanted.

I need to get me one of those...
