    Coming down the A1 on Thursday, look for the knob joining on left. I am definitely going to get some air horns

    No idea why but just lately a lot of stuff posted on youtube will not play for me..
    Loads up ok ( as the bar across the bottom indicates ) but the bar is grey and nothing actually plays..
    Plays ok in Explorer but not in Chrome for some reason

    Drivers dont seem to realise that when they are joining traffic from a sliproad the onus is on them to join safely.
    It now appears to be the norm that you are expected to get out of the way !!

    What made it worse, was I was being overtaken by a sprinter at the time so had no where to go.

    That happens so many times, I make a point now, if in car or MH, if I see someone coming on a joining road and looking like they will push in, to toot the horn ! Just to wake them up.

    Can you still get air horns ? You never seem to hear Col. Bogie round the streets any more.

    The problem for me is that the passenger in our 'van does not accept that I should move over. I've tried telling her but it's no use.
    I do pull over when we're talking about HGV's and the like because they invariably can't get up to speed on the slip road but unless they're of a similar ilk the 'enterers get short shrift, the horn and the lights every time

    A knob indeed, as you say. Luckily, you had the presence of mind not to pull into the next lane causing an accident.

    You can get air horns, but not ones that play tunes, I just want something LOUD to scare the bejesus out of them :mad:

    So even if there was no one in the lane to your right, preventing you changing lanes you wouldn't?
