Raw audio of walking past a car with its alarm/horn going off. The car had malfunctioned and the owner was desperately trying to turn it off - might as well make the most of it and record it! The recording starts about 10m away from the car, approaching as close as 1m before moving away again, at which point the recorder was pointed forwards as opposed to the car. The owner did eventually shut it off about 10s after the recording ends, so you can sleep well tonight.

This sound is NOT in the public domain. You MUST attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 22nd September 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
