Save yourself the ticket and go get that bulb changed!
I can’t believe I didn’t know this until recently. Maybe it’s common knowledge, but no one ever told me.
I hope the title makes sense. Obviously if you only drive your car this is unhelpful advice, but for all the times you’ll drive rentals and other people’s vehicles, this triangle next to the gas light is super helpful at preventing awkward gas station maneuvering.
Edit: Oh for the love of God, most arrows I know as arrows have a stem attached to the flat side of the triangle, okay? Without the stem they’re sometimes hard to identify as arrows, so I didn’t want people to be confused about what they were looking for.
Edit 2: Sideways like this ▶️
i don't know what they are!
I love my Model 3, it's a great car although not without it's faults. The thing I'm mostly struggling with is the stalks. I can turn the indicators on all right, but switching from blinking 'left' to blinking 'right' (when you're leaving a roundabout for example) feels like a toss up. What will happen? Will it blink right? Will it turn off the blinker? Or will your input be completely ignored?
There seems to be a lot of lag between your input and the response. I've learned I can increase my succes rate by using the indicators extremely slowly and deliberate.
It's the same for the 'gear shifter' when trying to go into neutral. Be calm and slow. Don't be like me last time on the conveyor car wash...
I really feel a strong disconnect between the interface and the expected outcome.
By doing that you are signaling that you acknowledge them and that you intend to comply. It really comes in handy especially if you don't see a place to conveniently or safely get off of the road immediately.
It sends a nice non-verbal signal that you don't intend to be a problem before they even step out of their vehicle and can help set the tone for a far more pleasant encounter.
Of course, nothing is a magic spell but it really helps. Probably won't do much in an actual riot but with everyone's nerves a little raw at the moment sending a reassuring signal before either car stops certainly won't hurt.
The amount of accidents would decrease exponentially if everyone would use them. When learning to drive you learn to look in your mirrors, put your hands on the wheel, use your foot to break and accelerate and to use your blinker. Yet for some reason people follow all of the basics except the blinker as if some how they forget how. Why is that?
I am currently sitting in a bar with a friend. On beer one we got the idea for a wireless bicycle blinker system (left, right, handle bar control).
My idea would be to have the blinkers wake up from sleep every 500ms and check for a broadcasted BLE uuid/command.
We’re on beer #3 and I am starting to doubt my idea.
What would be the best approach to a wireless blinker system and which esp (or other) would be best suited?
Are there any dashcams that are connected to the car & show when blinkers, reverse light etc are being used?
So i JUST bought a E46 330ci like a week ago, and I park right in front of my apartment building, I'm one buildings that has a driveways. I was late to my motorcycle class so i did about 230kmh / 145MPH on the way to the class and the road got a little bumpy and the car was bouncing up and down for a small bit. I noticed when i was getting off the highway that the right blinker was blinking very fast, so i thought I had a bulb out. However, it went back to normal after a minute and i didn't think anything of it. During the class, I noticed my car was missing the corner light. [didn't happen during class, we were next to the car the whole time]
So what do you guys think? Is it possible it just got shaken so hard when it was bouncing that it fell out? Also, the whole car was painted about a month or two before I bought so I'm wondering if the mark is indicative of a screwdriver, but i'm not sure if it would even pop out like that. Hoping you guys can shed some light.

Way too many drivers can be too trusting to the oncoming car when they are at a stop sign and the said car has his turn signal on which gives the illusion it is safe for you to pass the signaling car.
In reality you should never trust the oncoming car to turn until they commit cause they may be signaling for a turn beyond your stop sign or may change their minds at that moment.
It won't happen everytime but it is unnecessary risk you do not want when they actually do miss signal or change their minds.
I'm using carts from a dispensary; I'm a medical marijuana patient in PA. I've been using cartridges for like a year and people claim these are just like doing dabs but they're weak unless I take like a ten second hit and waste the cartridge. Is my tolerance just stupid high?
My whole passenger side turn blinkers have stopped working. Front and back. I’ve replaced the bulbs, but nothing still. If anyone could give some advice or suggestions it be greatly appreciated!
In real life, I actually think the entrance to the parking lot is slightly more to left than that quick illustration, but you get the idea.
My buddy got rear ended today and the person who hit him said "I couldn't see your brake lights going off". That got me thinking to add in a brake light strobe module, "GS-100A" to help get the attention of drivers. (I know some people find it quite annoying) but I guess that's what it's supposed to do? Get your attention lol. Long story short, I tried to test which wire was hot for the rear brake light with a multi meter and I heard a subtle tick. I'm not sure if it was one of the prongs from the multi meter chipping off the connector or a fuse. Now my brake light wont go off, rear signals in the rear wont work. The front signals somewhat work, if I put my signal onto the left the front right bulb will go off, vice versa for the left. The horn also doesn't work. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Spent more time stalking SUPER73 stuff now and researching accessories than anything right now. Here are some items I’ve decided made the cut for the S2. Hope this helps save others some time!

Hi, i have an volvo 850 1995 2L 10v. When i turn on the ignition, the blinkers work just as they should, but when i turn on the engine they stop working, I can’t even hear the relay then. Anybody heard of this before or know a solution?
Hello all, not sure if this is the best place to post but I’m having an issue with my vehicle after installing aftermarket headlights. Everything works fine but the blinkers are going faster. I’ve heard of this happening when one goes out but I can only guess this may have something to do with the new voltage. Any ideas?
So, my 2002 Honda accord turned offafter driving it a bit. It started to make the blinker /turn signal sound/click. Just as I was about to enter my parking lot, the car shut off.
Some history with the car... it's been leaking engine fluid for around 4 years already but I regularly top it off. I changed oil in February and now on Saturday. Drove it home. Went to Costco on Monday and on Tuesday and on the drive back on Tuesday is when the car shit off and made the clicking blinker lights sounds.
O thought it might be the oil change and it had no oil. But now that I check the bar, it seems to have oil. The bar comes out with oil
Here is the sound.
