Noise Pollution

I don't know how many times I have thought these exact sentiments. Thanks to Phil Norcross of Roseville for writing them as a letter to the editor in today's Star Tribune:

… think door-locking can happen silently

The guy who invented the car that honks just because you lock the door should be hunted down and sentenced to life with a car horn hung around his neck on a chain.

I can’t be the only person who’s stood on a sidewalk, or walked through a lot, minding his own business, only to be jump-startled by a car horn because the driver can’t be bothered to push the button on the door, or put the key in the hole.

It’s a ridiculously lazy waste of noise, that honking button in your pocket. I hope your batteries wear out and leave you stuck in the rain.
