    The drivers are horning each other...

    Where I live, people say "The drivers are horning each other, as there is a traffic jam."

    Is 'horning' correctly used?

    Thanks.

    It doesn't work in BrE either. We would say the drivers were honking/beeping [at] each other, or possibly blasting their horns at each other.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
