ABOUT YHONK

Yhonk is a very simple solution to control the noise pollution caused by honking. Yhonk is a system working between you and your local government body, to help you reduce your daily honking.

You
Local Government Body

Here is how it works:

  • You can get the Yhonk sensor, smaller the size of a matchbox, installed in your car by any auto mechanic.
  • Once installed, you can download the Yhonk app on your phone and complete authentication of your vehicle by entering your mobile number, vehicle number and your Yhonk device number.
  • Every 6 months, you can get your Yhonk device renewed by *renewal process* to keep the system running smoothly.
  • The local government body will set a general limit for all the users in the city. You can honk up to this limit till 12 midnight. After 12 am, the device will reset to your allowed daily limit, ready to be used.
  • Once you have used up your daily honk allowance, you will have to press harder to honk. After a limit of these emergency honks, you horn will stop working. In order to get it started, you will have to pay a pre-decided penalty to the local government body.
