Why Do You Honk?

Anyone who drives northbound through the Valley during the evening rush hour toward the 405/5 merge, knows this particular tunnel just past Rinaldi. It's a tunnel that somehow, mysteriously takes control of drivers hands, forcing them to lay on the horn in either short staccato bursts or in one long-ass honk.

It's as if cars and drivers are venting their frustration of being caught day in and day out in one of the slowest traffic spots in SoCal, saying, "We're mad as hell, but we have to take it some more..."

Why do you honk through that tunnel? And yeah, we're talking to you.
