Like others have said if there is a stop sign you need to stop, actually stop not give way. If I was doing this on a deserted street and the person behind me honked I would be peeved. I wouldn't get out of my car but I would pause a little longer just to make my point That being said I also wouldn't honk at someone who has stopped at a stop sign..

I don't think it's normal or rational to get out of your car to confront someone for beeping their horn.
As for the beeper I think a short are you paying attention beep is justified.

Best to apply the 3 seconds because the fine for not stopping at a stop sign is a lot and people still get fined for simply coming to a complete stop briefly rather than a significant stop. It really depends on the police officer who catches you.

I think partly for that reason I am very vigilant about actually stopping at stop signs, irrespective of how much traffic there is the area etc. If someone 'honked' at me I would glare and shake my head at them through my rear view mirror and probably gesture at the stop sign. I think there are way too many idiots on the road that don't actually pay any attention to signs.
Curious as to where the OP is going with this one?

This kinda happened to me, I was on my ps so nervous and I didn't think it was safe to go. The car behind started honking and yelling, I was already stressed and freaking out, so I started yelling abuse out the window.
At that point I didn't have road rage. I just couldn't handle the beeping and being pushed to go when I was already stressing about making my move

Thanks everyone. There's no question that the person in front (who happened to be my DH) was in the right for stopping completely and that the person honking behind was just an impatient ****. But the fact that my DH felt the need to get out of his car and confront the honker bothers me - a lot. He feels that it was completely appropriate to do so, but I feel that it was aggressive and ridiculous behaviour on his behalf. I wanted to get some balanced views before telling which side of the story I was coming from, to see if I am the only one who would find his behaviour inappropriate.
