Car Sun Visor wear rates?

Post Posted: Mon Oct 29, 2012 5:11 pm

Hi,

As the sun is now lower in the sky I note this a.m. several cars driving down through our village directly into the sun. However none of the drivers were using the sun visor and were consequently not really able to see where they were going.

I didn't know that sun visors wore out!! Hmmm.

Regards

Robin

p.s. Mainly expats this a.m., but applies to locals as well!

I've noticed over a number of years that many cars sun visors are not deep enough to shade the eyes when the sun is really low in the sky, unless you are a tall person, which I am not.

Don't know about the wearing out of the sun visor in cars, but the indicators don't last long out here

Neither of our cars are garaged and although my Land Rover has glass headlamp lenses my wife's Suzuki has plastic lenses. These degrade very rapidly in direct sunlight and have to be polished (the garage uses a mild abrasive and an electric drill with a polishing pad) before it's IPO.

Dreadful state of affairs.

The mens toilets at intermarche are worn out too.

I parked my car in the car park the other day and a man walked out from intermarche, round my car and proceeded to pee up my wheel while I was sat in the car.

Lots of stuff gets worn out here. Shocked

Did you blow the horn??

Er, maybe that could be misconstrued....

Did you give an audible warning signal??

Bless

I was refering to the almost non use of the indicators by the local natives
