That they're loud and annoying! No but the "wailing" "siren" ones make me laugh honestly, even the thought of them! Never thought much of the horn honking ones though.

I HATE when people push the "lock" button on their clicker 137 times and make the car honk.

My father, rest his soul, did a very evil and hilarious thing once. I wasn't there, but apparently he came out of store to find a couple of teenagers leaning on his car, a couple hundred yards away, just talking or whatever. He hit the alarm on his fob, and they accelerated faster than the car!

And that is the only practical use for a car alarm!  :D

Once a group I was with scared the crap out of a dog in a small parking lot with the key fob and just locking/unlocking the rental car...(lights flash, horn beeps once or twice).  Still not as funny as yours, though, Trent!

I think it's time for makers of UK TV programs to stop adding silly car alarm 'pip pip' sound effects that no car makes in reality, whenever someone locks/unlocks a car!  ???

That's everywhere, not just the UK. Indeed, I've never heard a real car make that sound in my entire life.

My dad has told me his dad had a car (I think it was a Lincoln) whose alarm was SO sensitive you could set it off with the riding lawnmower going next to the driveway! Then you couldn't get in the car either of course...I think they may have even had to wait until the battery died to get in LOL.  But I could be wrong on that one.
I've also heard of them being so sensitive that the dog/cat walking by and brushing against a car can set them off!

Re the red panic button, my two year old son like to push it and subsequently says quietly "beep, beep". I don't like him playing with my keys because he broke a difficult-to-duplicate house key once...

On a more serious note, my late grandfather used to push the red panic button to help him find his car in large parking lots (like at the mall).

Not when you insert the key partway into the wrong lock and then bump your knee into it ! Although he is quite strong... The key broke where the cut is quite deep so a weak point.
