India has many motorists who love different horns on the roads. It is one of the top countries when it comes to the usage of different kinds of horns. This is the reason why noise pollution in India is pretty high. Honking has become a habit of many Indian drivers and that’s why some people consider aftermarket horns for better sound quality. Some people also import horns from foreign countries and install them in their cars. Here is one such guy who installed a pressure horn worth Rs 1 lakh in his Mahindra Thar.
This Rs 1 lakh horn has been imported from Canada which sounds like a train horn. According to the owner, the car horn sounds exactly like a train horn and uses a complicated set-up. In fact, there is a different set-up placed on the back of the car. It gets an air compressor and a network of pipes that blow into the horn, which is placed in the engine bay of the car.
It should be noted that there is a separate button for the horn because you cannot use it on the public roads because big and loud pressure horns are banned in India. Earlier, pressure horns were quite common on the Indian roads and were installed in all the roadway buses and trucks.
Police in the different states of India now ensures that people do not use such loud horns. According to the Indian government, the maximum loudness of a horn cannot exceed 112 dB. The cost of this horn is Rs 1 lakh, which is pretty expensive. Another horn available in the market is a trumpet horn which costs around Rs 25,000 or a compressor horn, which is priced at Rs 35,000. Using such loud horns can give anxiety attacks to the people or can permanently damage their ears. So, always prefer using stock horns.
