Disturbing trend with clear indicators
Either fashion has changed in recent years, or the average person hasn't got a clue about clear indicators. A startling percentage of stock vehicles I am seeing with clear indicators have had the proper amber bulbs replaced with regular clear ones. The result is annoyingly bright and arguably unsafe indicators without even a hint of amber/yellow. It's also something of a fundamental roadworthy issue.
I'm not sure how the installers fail to notice that the old bulbs are amber. Perhaps people are turning a blind eye, or trying to save a couple of cents. Predictably, Falcons and Commodores (mainly EF and VR onwards) are most effected.
Might be time for a little public education one of these days...
