Default Do you know where your off-stump is ?

Hey,

Just kidding,....actually do you guys know where your car's front left corner is while driving or parking. I remember ealier in Amby's and contessa there used to be some kind of an ariel in the front left corner(I dunno its purpose) but i suppose it could help one know where the front left corner is.

Any idea are such things available today to fit on the modern day 'plastic bumpers' of our cars? or anything else that can help one where his off-stump is

to know where your off-stump is glow your b*l*s ;

bulbs it is
use the hazard lights in such situations and even use dipper!
but it'll only work when there is something ahead of you.

else it is quite difficult to sense that exact location of front left!
for such situations, there is a RVM type of mirror which is fitted on the bonnets of big SUVs' farthest left corner. this enables them to judge the end of bonnet and also the contact patch of front left tyre with ground.

also it does gives that cheap macho look to you car!

As sbasak stated, a similar topic exists here (How does not being able to see the bonnet affect your driving style?)
