Vehicle Movicators !

It was not until recently that I have observed an increase in the different types of Indicators on our road vehicles these days:

1. Indicators - These are usually Orange and are seen on vehicles who wish to advise other road users of their intentions e.g. I intend to turn right or left or I intend to move into the flow of traffic to the right or Left. The Indicators are usually turned on prior to movement of the vehicle and after ensuring that it is safe to do so. :thumb:

2. Move-icators - These are also Orange and are usually seen milli-seconds before the vehicle makes it manouevre, whether safe to do so or not :mad:

3. Disfunctional-icators - Of no colouration as they do not appear to be working on the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle just makes whatever manouevre they wish without any form of indication whatsoever to other vehicle users or even pedestrians :mad:

I have also made a similar observation in the use of vehicle lighting in general, it would appear that some vehicles do not have any lights for use in inclement weather, fog or during hours of darkness :eek:

Has anyone else made any other observations regarding vehicles and driving habits on our roads :rolleyes:

best not drive in the dark .or if its raining .far safer to stay in the house and take the micky on the internet.
its not compulsory to have lights or indicators .on vehicles . so doesnt matter .

Alan you don't half cheer me up sometimes :D:D:thumb:

If you do have lights and indicators they do have to work though or it will fail an MOT.

I too have noted for some time that fewer and fewer vehicles are being fitted with indicators of any type, but then we are creatures of habit and....I drive down this piece of road every Tuesday and I always turn right, you must have seen me before......or else....I know where I'm going so mind your own buisness....come to mind:D
