As with guy who originally had the 100K law suited against him partly quashed, the judge mentioned he would have been better braking then sounding a warning. Implying that in the time he took to do so would have been better used to slow down.
You can brake and shout at the same time. We have bells in very easy reach of the left thumb and use them when possible, but still often find we need to call (maybe just 'ding, ding') or in extremis shout. We go pretty slowly and carefully, but pedestrians (including us when walking) can be pretty unpredictable.
