I find that a bell is good for reminding pedestrians you are there before they do something stupid but shouting is more effective once they've stepped out without looking or whatever.
Bells don't seem to have any effect on car drivers and you have to shout _REALLY LOUD_ to get heard over the radio or mobile phone.

I haven't used an air horn but you just know that it would be out of juice just when you need it.

The bell is also good for the deer in Richmond Park as I'd feel a bit silly shouting at wild animals to get out of the way :-)
