Can we think of a better way to communicate between vehicles than the traditional horn?

How many times have you been startled by a loud honk beside you, only to realize it is one person trying to get the attention of some long lost friend?

Honking is used to communicate so many messages. I would assume the original intent of the horn was to only be used in cases of impending danger. However, it's uses have inevitably been stretched beyond that single message.

Anyways, just want to start a discussion. I don't want to propose a solution yet.
