A Massachusetts man plans to seek further appellate review after a state appeals court affirmed lower court rulings upholding his $55 citation for honking at a police officer during a traffic jam, his attorney (and father) told Law.com on Wednesday.

Robert M. Hagopian, 45, is represented by his father, Robert W. Hagopian, 87, in a case that raises a constitutional challenge to the motor vehicle infraction of unreasonable honking. The case made its way from a district clerk-magistrate to the Massachusetts Court of Appeals, with each judge along the way finding the younger Hagopian responsible for violating motor vehicle laws, according to the Massachusetts Appeals Court’s opinion filed Tuesday.
