I also posted this in on an earlier thread similar to this, regarding light bars, but I also posted it here, in a new thread. It isn't exactly radio related, but I did the best I could to find a home on the forum for this question.

Is there any law in Canada, or more specifically, in New Brunswick that say that I can't have one of these electric "air horns" in my car?

Thanks,

I answered your other post, so please read that first. I would also like to add that your best bet would be to consult with a local law enforcement officer. The link I provided in my answer to your other post could be interpreted a few different ways (as stated by another user).

I think it all boils down to what your intentions are for the unit itself. If its something to just annoy or scare other drivers, chances are if you get caught, the police won't be very forgiving.

Sorry but as you said, it's off topic for this forum.

You might want to try one of the Tavern forums or elightbars.com.

Guys, we've had a couple of threads regarding vehicular warning equipment in the forum lately. Please keep in mind that this is a "forum for discussion of Radio Information..."

Try to keep your threads on topic.

Thanks.
