Since we agree that the Hazard Lights are misused,and also indicators are often used wrongly let us take the initiative to follow the correct practices, and also try and educate our fellow motorists about proper etiquette and usage.

Noble sentiment, but even in this forum, there are two camps.

All one can do is do the sensible thing oneself, recognising the fact the using the feature isn't going to provide the protection it does in more enlightened driving cultures.

Compounding this is the human tendency that means that if in a tunnel with cars not using these lights, one person putting them on leads to many imitators. But in a tunnel with many using these, one person not using them does not seem to encourage others to follow that lead.

And pity the ones who think it is right.

Been saying time & again, hazards don't illuminate as well as headlamp, tail lamp, fog-lamps, else I would be using hazards instead of using headlamps/fog-lamps at night, no?

And do they like like when someone switches hazards on their face?

And what about the klick-klock sound emanating from the hazard switch? It is an irritant as well. Don't know how other bear with constant klick-klock klick-klock...
