Authorities are now going after vehicles with “tenonet” horn sounds.
What is a tenonet horn sound you ask? We’ll take a listen to some of the colourful honks made by the lorries and busses reprimanded by Selangor’s Road Transportation Department (JPJ) in an operation to drive away motorists with illegally modified honkers.

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.Selangor JPJ via Facebook
Motorists who are caught with these funky sounding horns retrofitted on their vehicles can face a maximum fine of RM2,000 or six months in jail under section 119 of the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333).
