    Is it legal to use a marine air horn on a bike? I finally got my adult tricycle up and running, and I figure that earbud-wearing runners and other bike-riders will not be able to hear a conventional ooga horn or bike bell.

    You’re riding an adult tricycle. There’s no doubt in my mind that people will notice you.

    My bell is plenty loud IMO. I kinda like the way it looks, too.

    I don’t know if it’s illegal, but I’d be pretty fucking annoyed if you blasted it behind me. I can hear a bell when I’ve got earbuds in and if someone else can’t, just calm the fuck down and wait until you can pass them. You’d expect the same from a driver, wouldn’t you?

    I’d say you’ll probably get kicked over but the 3rd wheel might prevent that from working

    This. OP, save the horns for cars trying to run your ass over.

    Just use the regular ooga horn or bell. If that doesn’t work, switch immediately to proton torpedoes.

    You’re going to get your ass capped with that stunt even in Ye Olde Northe Columbus.

    I find that a simple “on your left” is pretty effective. Everything else is kind of annoying. If you got ear buds cranked up too loud to hear a basic alert, ain’t my fault you get pissed when being passed.
