    Posted: 29 Jan 2014 at 3:47pm
So I'm waiting to pull out onto the street  this morning, and the traffic clears so I make my turn onto the road.  Suddenly, I hear *HONK HONK HONK!!* and quickly started to hit my brakes thinking there was some car that mysteriously came out of nowhere which I was pulling out in front of.  Then it occurred to me that the honking was coming from the radio, and it was some Toyota ad boasting about its cars and their safety features.  

Who's the asshole who thought it would be a good idea to have horn honking sound effects in a radio commercial?? It's annoying like the TV commercials that feature door knocking or doorbell ringing, but also dangerous because it could cause drivers to swerve or slam on their brakes, resulting in an accident.

Auto Zone has a radio ad that includes the sound of dashboard alarms (like when you don't buckle up) going off.  It always makes me look down at my dash to see what's wrong.

Commercials like that should be illegal. Along the lines of ambulance and police sirens in radio commercials.

There was a radio commercial a few years back that featured an emergency vehicle siren in the background! I also remember one with a honking horn. I found CIH because ringing door bells and phones in TV commercials were driving me insane. The Adtards think this age old technique to get our attention is so clever. I hope those responsible for the siren one were severely punished!
