'Horn OK Please'

Sounds familiar? We all have come across this phrase ...well we all Indians have come across it. Every time I read this on a truck, in my head I said to myself , it is probably an alert for the vehicle riding behind a truck to sound a horn. However I always wondered why the OK? Why should it be Horn Ok Please?! Well, I finally googled and here is the reason for the 'OK'.

This is not supposed to be a serious post but it just struck me how people start a norm and then everyone follows it blindly without even knowing the reason behind it! Be it the case with beliefs, superstitions or something as funny as 'Horn OK Please'!
