Four-way emergency flashers

Do they make you invincible? Both sides are using them in Lybia.

Don't know but they seem to do so in this country when you 'park' on the brow of a hill or near a 'blind' bend.

Or park on yellow lines, maybe they make the vehicle invisible to the traffic wardens.

Isn't the correct term 'I'll just be a minute flashers'?

I would suggest "I'm stupid and inconsiderate flashers"!

The powers of the four-way flasher, about tells it all in any country.

I have lost count of the number of times I've seen vehicles resume their journey still with their hazard flashers going.During the day,the shops on the estate are a magnet for the idiots who think that hazard lights allow them to block the road while they meander into the newsagent/pie shop.It is on a bus route & buses frequently cannot get into the bus stops and nobody can get past.My opinion is the same as Mr Mistoffelees ""I'm stupid and inconsiderate flashers"!"

I used to love idiots who parked on double yellows and thought they could get away with it by putting their flashers on. Did em twice once for parking and once for unessecary use of hazard warning lights.

Maybe the Libyan cars have broken down with bullets in the radiators.

I suspect they use then as convoy lights in the dusty conditions

...the police.

Many times I have seen Traffic Police using four way flashers when escorting abnormal loads. It must get very interesting when they need to signal that they are turning right or left!!

'Did em twice .........and once for unessecary use of hazard warning lights.'

Presumably this is some law you made up yourself?
