Meet the indicator, a little-known but life-saving device

The car indicator: a little-used but life-saving invention

Dear Sir,

For those of us who have the privilege of operating motorised vehicles on our roads, whether they be automobiles or bikes, I have been led to believe that they all should be fitted with indicators (points out one’s intention) at the time of purchase, considering the price one has to pay.

Perhaps all motorised vehicles do come with indicators already installed but for some reason, the salesperson does not show or inform the buyer that this marvellous device is installed for safety purposes and is already included in the purchase price.

If you have already checked for and found this marvellous device, “great”! If not, I would highly recommend that you return to the dealership from which your purchase was made and ask them to show you where the indicator switch is on your vehicle, and should they not be able to find it, you should ask them to install one as you have already paid for it.

I can only imagine the frustration that some road users must feel when they come to a roundabout, or have a need to change direction and have no way of informing their fellow road users of their good and safe intentions.

Just think how much safer our roads would be when we all start using indicators at the appropriate times.

Keep smiling and let us all enjoy being safe when on our roads by being law-abiding and courteous to others.
