N.Y. cabbies get horn honk warning


New York City cabbies are being warned that horn honking could lead to a $350 fine.

A warning message from the Taxi and Limousine Commission began appearing on taxicab information monitors Monday: “Drivers — remember that honking is against the law except when warning of imminent danger! Be a good neighbor and save yourself a $350 summons — honk ONLY in an emergency!”

The TLC says passengers should tell drivers that they do not want them to honk their horns. If the driver does not comply, they should call 311 to report the violation.
