Manush Sanman, an organisation in India has awarded a driver that country at its latest Humanity Fair for driving without blaring his car horn for the past 18 years.

A report by odditycentral.com suggests that some cars do not have side mirrors, and others have them folded because extending them outwards could lead to collision with other vehicles.

However, there are some few drivers who are opposed to the move, as they admit it causes noise pollution.

One of such drivers is Dipak Das, based in Kolkata. He has been a fervent campaigner against noise pollution and for that reason refuses to horn in order to draw the attention of other drivers to avoid accident.

Reports say Dipak Das has abstained from horning for the past 18 years and rather placed a placard on his car with a campaign message against reckless horning.

He told Hindustan Times that “I think if a driver follows this no-horn policy, he will become more alert while driving. If a driver has proper sense of space, speed, and timing, he or she need not use horn.”

Dipak Das whose aim is to promote “no-honking city” in Kolkata believes “It is not something that cannot be achieved or very difficult to achieve. What is required for this is administrative and political goodwill.”

He was chosen for the award because all the celebrities and respectable people who have patronized his services before, have all testified to his no horning principle that he had stuck to for the past 18 years.
