A good friend of mine was almost involved in a road rage incident recently. The other driver attempted to escalate the situation, but my friend kept his cool and fortunately didn't have to use his carry weapon. My question is, do you honk at other drivers when they screw up, or just let it be? I choose not to honk, but that's just me.
I'll give you to the count of three to get off my property...one, two, BANG!
Depends. If I have to alert them to keep from hitting me I will honk. If I can avoid them safely I will usually ignore. I never honk in anger.

I believe the horn is there for a reason, therefore I use it when I deem necessary.

If it will avoid an accident, I'll use the horn. If the driver just does something ignorant, I let it go. First of all, the vast majority of people didn't get up in the morning, look in the mirror and tell themselves that they plan to find a driver and cut him/her off or purposely screw up another drivers day. Second, I'd just as soon not get into an altercation just because someone else made a mistake. Third, I do dumb stuff on occasion and would like a little slack. It's not worth an ulcer worrying about "getting even" with someone who does something dumb.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I have, but usually I'm not reaching for the horn. I'm putting both hands on the wheel to try and maneuver away from the accident. I'm on the road all day for my job, and I'd constantly have my hand on the horn, if I used it to express my displeasure at people cutting me off, driving 20 MPH slower than the speed limit, weaving in and out of traffic, stopping on the freeway, etcetcetcetc. There are so many "out of staters" in Texas now, that they don't realize that over 60% of cars on Texas roads have guns in them. It's a credit to our restraint that more people aren't shot while driving.

I genmerally only honk for two reasons. First, to warn someone they are where they shouldn't be and are in danger of causing an accident. The other time I honk is when I go by some idiot who is texting, and I do that to scare the crap out of them if I can. And woe be unto anyone who tries to bring his road rage into my vehicle.
