I know a friendly horn has been suggested before, and somebody even says it's been done, but I'm not finding it.
Therefore, adding a minor twist, the little yellow happy face button in the middle of your steering wheel that activates it, I'm bringing this up again. It's a great idea, everybody would
use it and I think everybody would understand what the little yellow smiley face button was for.
It would be recessed so you'd have to stick your finger in it to do the toot-toot thing so you wouldn't accidentally hit it when you slammed your horn with the palm of your hand in anger or terror.
