By definition, you have joined the ranks of "distracted drivers" . . . :eek:

With "the stereo blasting" you can no longer hear approaching emergency vehicles making you too a hazard?

When you are one of the smallest objects in the flow of traffic it is far healthier to "drive defensively."

That being said, might want to consider installing a real horn ON STEROIDS!

That's like saying you bought a lifted pickup that rolls coal so people could see you better.
