Stupid reflectors

So I was sick of those stupid reflectors on the rear bumper that do nothing but make our cars look cheap. I rattle canned 'em the threw a couple coats of clear on there and here is the product. I like it a lot better!

Really? Ha. A REFLECTOR is meant to reflect a light aimed at it... It doesn't need a light to be useful for visibility.

I'm sorry but I gotta say something about all the reflector "safety kid" bill crap. For example, you take Yohann Dumbass bookin down a dark street the same time you are gonna cross an intersection about 20 yards in front of him. No assuming both parties have their head lights on and are looking forward, it's safe to say that Mr. Dumbass would have to be blind to, A: Not see you with his own headlights and B: not see the sparkling glow of your headlights. Now let's mix it up a bit. Say Mr. Dumbass is cruising down the same dark street and nears the intersection, when all of a sudden Mr. Dumbass' Twinkie fell outta his mouth, bounce off his lap and landed on the floor. Mr. Dumbass is no man to let such a tasty morsel go to waste, so considering the ten second rule he bends down and reaches for it. You on the other hand are alert and aware that you stopped first so it's you turn thru the intersection. As you get almost half way you notice Mr. Dumbass isn't stopping. He is stretching his pudgy little fingers as far as he can but the golden prize is just outta his reach. He hits you, without hitting the brakes. You both get out to asses the damage. Relieved that no one is hurt, he offers to call the police and you call your insurance agency. As you inform them you're in an accident and no one was hurt, they ask "Sir can you tell us what happened?" You respond "I don't know, he just blew thru the intersection! I can't believe he didn't see my reflectors!!"

---------- Post added at 09:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:00 PM ----------

To sum it up, if the person who is gonna hit you is too drunk, stupid, blind or has their lights off then your reflectors are worthless! To normal people just the sight of a vehicle clues them that there is a car there. Plus shiny rims are just as noticeable and look better!

Haha, kid? How old are you? I'm not saying they're going to protect you from accidents or save you from idiots, just saying it can help people see you just a little better at night. I'm SO sorry I just don't see spraypainting the markers black is a good idea. Ha. My opinion. If you don't like it, ignore it.

But I'm with him on that. I'm not putting them back on my car. I'll fill in the holes on the new bumper and that'll be it.
