Authorities are now going after vehicles with “tenonet” horn sounds.

Rhythm is against the law

JPJ strictly reminds Malaysians that it was against the law to have rhythmic or horns with more than a single tone installed on vehicles because not only does it confuse other road users, the noise also disturbs people.

Horns are an important feature on vehicles and function to provide warning, reminder or a signal to other motorists with the use of sound, But, the use of horns with more than a single tone can confuse other road users about the message that’s being conveyed and can disrupt public peace if the noise were made in residential areas.
