IT is a traffic jam and not a single vehicle is moving. Yet, there are a few who insist on honking, as if it would help ease traffic. There are some others who are obsessed with honking even in silent zones.

This unnecessary honking is a form of road rage and with the crumbling infrastructure and endless traffic jams, it is a real menace.

To raise awareness about the nuisance of excessive honking, Ranjit Narayan, a college student, and a group of friends have organised 'Horn Not OK Please' rally here on Sunday. The campaign had several volunteers on six bikes and one car with banners and stickers conveying the message on the road.

The rally started from Anil Kumble Circle and proceeded through MG road, Brigade Road, Residency Road, Commercial Street and Cubbon Road.

Speaking to this website’s newspaper, Ranjit said: “With the ever-increasing traffic in the city, excessive honking has become a menace.

This campaign aims to curb the menace of unnecessary honking, which includes honking at signals and areas declared silent zones.”

He said that many vehicles use horns which are shrill and multi-toned, flouting the rules. He said that if people travelling by cabs and other vehicles insist on not honking, it would help in reducing the menace.
