Don't Honk; $350 Penalty

The theme photo for February was "What Annoys You Most About Your City" and I posted a photo of a crowded subway train because it was the easiest concept to translate into photography. But in actuality, the thing that annoys me most about living in NYC is the car alarms that seem to go off at 3 AM in the morning right outside my bedroom window. But how does one translate that into a photograph?

Well, now I have found a perfect photo to illustrate my feeling. This street sign on the corner of Mott and Spring Street in SoHo says honking (I assume it means at night) will result in a fine of $350. All I have to say is, "Bravo!" If I were Mayor Michael Bloomberg, I would make drivers pay $1 for every honk they make.

What do you think? Do you use the honk frequently?
