Re: CAR HONKING IN ISRAEL AND HAWAII

Aloha!

 

Here on the 9th island, we so hate the honking.

 

First, why?

 

We, the vehicle in front of you see more than you do.

 

Second, we know our vehicle performance; do you know if it will accellerate 50 feet before those vehicles headed at me at 50 mph from 1/2 block away?

 

Unless it is an emergency situation, just why?

 

Thanks for the post!

CAR HONKING IN ISRAEL AND HAWAII

Message 2 of 2

A PUBLISHED LETTER TO THE EDITOR IN HONOLULU:

 

As a recent letter to the editor rightly indicated, there is an uptick in car honking in Honolulu. But after returning from Israel, where for decades honking is the national pastimes (more of a pestime), drivers in our county are admirably civil. If I hear a honk once in a while, I am not annoyed at this rare violation of the aloha spirit. In Honolulu, there is none of the incessantly strident, unnecessary honking so prevalent in Israel. In fact, I once witnessed an Israeli driver honking at a motorcyclist even before the light turned green. So, as my epitaph might well read, everything is relative.
