Horns & Flags To Be Banned in Aurora

Aurora, Illinois is poised to outlaw honking your car horn while waving a flag.

And you thought cell phone users were a problem.

Though it's never mentioned anywhere in the new law, the honking-flag-waving ban targets Mexican-Americans. It's apparently a tradition to celebrate love of homeland.

People complain that it's too noisy.

This in a state that celebrates Polish heritage with polkas played on accordians?

Heck, the Valley Community Bank of Illinois -- with offices in North Aurora -- even co-sponsors something called "Illinois Polkafest." (Chicago Tribune)
