    Default Invisible Signum

    Hi fellow signum/vectra c drivers!

    I have to ask - does anyone else have an "invisible" signum? I ask this because, with increasing frequency, my black signum is ignored by pedestrians, other road users, animals, etc to the point where I have come to the conclusion that it must be invisible. They just love to walk/drive/run in front of it.

    I don't have this problem in any other car, just the signum. Anyone else have this problem?

    (and no - it's not just at night with no lights on!)

    Regards


    FakeBob

    Default Invisible Siggy

    I lived in Plymouth for 8 years or so - I don't think it's anything to do with Signums in particular (& the Wife is a Janner too ).

    Still, should have got a Siggy in Panacotta - it's not an old mans' colour you know!

    As Matt said it's just Plymouth. Our black signum was hit in Bodmin when some stupid woman 'drove' out a car parking space, would of been a bit more forgivinng had she of reversed out. And to make matters worse there was nothing either side of her for about three or four spaces. Needless to say she got a mouth full
