My VX is now easy to see

http://www.flickr.com/photos/14960392@N03/

A magnetic trailer hitch alignment kit from Harbor Freight - $9.00
Two spring clamps to fasten them to the hatch - 30 cents

The antennae are extended to about 7 feet tall. The maximum height is about 8 feet.

That's funny you did that...
Not because I think you're funny.
But because people really DO drive as IF they can't see you,
they really do, it's just horrible.

The part that I think is funny, how your car
looks now is unlikely to get THAT part of the
message across.
Sad, too...

Pretty clever - that's what I think.

I didn't know your bumper was black and didn't match the rest of the car. Heck, you could of spray painted the aft portion of the rear bumper fluorescent orange - THAT would be easier to see.

Still, you can't fix stupid people. Even if you had a turret of the back of the car and a big sign stating it is automatically programmed to shot anyone within 10 feet of the rear of the car while traveling over 60mph - they'd still do it.

They look like the feelers a bug has on their head...

So strange looking.

Bet they cost you 3 MPG. If some idiot comes flying up my arse in the right lane I would pull off on the shoulder and sandblast his front end with some gravel.

My plan is to use the antennae on the interstate where the speed differential is the problem. They're easy to put on and remove and they're stored in a convenient location.

And, the antennae will come off before I pull into the parking lot at work. I don't really mind if strangers laugh at me as long as they see me. And, I know I would never hear the end of it if my co-workers saw this.

Marge: Kids can be so cruel.
Bart: Thanks, Mom!
