    Default Renault 16

    Followed a very unloved, but registered R16 today.

    What made me take more notice was the hand the driver stuck out their window ... at first I'm thinking they are waving at someone, then i see they are slowing down and realise they are giving the "brake" hand signal .. yep this car had no brake lights, or indicators and the driver was using hand signals!!

    Now full marks to the lady who was at least hand signalling, but can you legally drive a car in this state of dis-repair now ?

    Scary stuff! Especially when there would likely be many drivers who wouldn’t recognise, or even be looking out for a hand signal.

    It would certainly be unroadworthy with none of the lights operating which are supposed to be operating. I guess if she was taking the car to get repaired, that would be the only excuse for driving it.

    Our MG TC only has brake lights, or should I say one brake light, and it is still legal to drive it without indicators. For the un-initiated cars came that way in 1948. Won't belong before it's finished.
