    Q406: When can I use the horn in my car?

    A horn should only be used when warning someone of danger, not to indicate your annoyance at a manner of driving.

    A horn should not be sounded when stationary on a road at any time, other than at times of danger due to another vehicle on or near the road.

    A horn should not be used on a moving vehicle on a restricted road (basically a road that has street lights and a 30mph limit) between the times of 11:30 pm and 7:00 am.
