No it doesn’t. And more importantly, how can I get one of these weapons for my own use?
Just last week, while waiting at a 4-way stop, a fire truck was coming down toward the intersection. Yay! We are already all stopped so they can just go right through. Wait, what? One car looks, sees we are all stopped, and turns out directly in front of the fire truck, not only slowing it down because now it can’t manuver around since we are all backed up in all directions, but also almost getting annihilated by the fire truck as it could hardly slow down in time. A small part of me wanted that, just to clear the gene pool. But it was late and i just wanted to go home, and that definitely would have delayed my day, as I was first in the line and would have been a primary witness.
Tl;dr - people are stupid and I should be in charge of granting drivers licenses.
Okay, I get that you might not have the money to replace the broken back window in your car. Most people use a sheet of clear plastic to help seal it up so they can see through it and it doesn’t cost much. But seriously? How poor and/or lazy do you have to be to use multiple strips of packing tape instead of the plastic?
We have rules. The rules state that you do not use your fog lamps until visibility is less than 300 yards. This is easily measurable: can you see three streetlights ahead? Yes? Then visibility is greater than 300 yards.
And when your shitty Punto has two fog lights of equal intensity to your brake lights, your third brake light is out, and you’ve also got your tail lights on it makes it bloody hard to tell when you’re slamming on your brakes!
Yup, because fog is a relatively common thing, and “proper fog” (where you might be able to see the road in front of the car, most of the time) isn’t unheard of.
And yeah, in the UK it’s an offence (though you’re unlikely to have the police bother you unless they’re having a bad day) to drive with front or rear fog lights on when visibility isn’t low enough. Our front fogs won’t come on with other lights automatically though, for exactly that reason.
Mine come on with the running lights. It’s a known fault so when I get pulled over I can show them the log book with the mechanic’s note haha. Apparently in some countries they don’t use the running lights in the main cluster, instead they have ‘hi’ and ‘low’ lights in the fog lamp enclosure. The result? I have ‘hi’ and ‘low’ running lights, both of which trigger the fogs because it’s cheaper to produce the wiring loom that way I guess
And now we add rolls of shrink-wrap to the list of materials used to replace rear windows. Not the household saran-wrap kind, but the type used to secure large boxes together on a pallet for shipping. Has the bonus of creating a rippled surface that reflects light at random angles and is hard to see out of.
Yes, we’re all very impressed with how small your penis is how loud your exhaust is, but the point still remains that you have grounded yourself on that speed bump with your illegally lowered suspension, and the rest of us drivers find it hilarious.
