We see a fair bit of conjecture regarding bells and their use. I actually have an old time horn that came with my bike
It is a very distinctive sound and one toot usually gets the attention of the path users.
This person was taking the whole path and I was only going slowly but without a toot he had no Idea I was coming along.
It just shows how folks can be completely absorbed in their own thoughts and a bell can be a good help.
Here I see the ped ahead.
I give a small toot on the horn an even startle him.
He has time to get to his side.
I said "thanks mate" as I passed and received a friendly "no problem". The thing is I did slow to an easy pace to allow the interaction to take place.
Funny looks like he done a hop and a skip out of the way, Yep day dreamer !!
