Hazard Wiskers for Cars

When cars turn on their hazard lights on while stationary, there should be wiskers of yellow flags with blinking yellow LED lights that automatically extends out the sides of the car.

This would avoid other cars from hitting the person, who is working on fixing the broken down car. :3

       Me too. Have a [Z].   

       The passing car barely missed him. "That was a close shave" he said.

       A worthy idea, but since there are numerous videos of emergency service vehicles- replete with flashing lights - being sideswiped or rear-ended by inattentive motorists, we doubt it will actually help much.

       A better solution, by far, would be an extending red muleta which sticks out, only to whisk itself automatically aside as a car charges toward it.

       Read as Hazard Wiskers for Cats, of course.
Now there's an idea. Frisco won't go head on into the wall anymore, when he takes a flying leap and misses the table.

       We would pay money to watch a video of that.

       Why does that :3 remind me of Cthulu...I think it's chin tentacles?

       // Cthulu //   

       Sp. "Cthulhu"   

       As in, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" ("In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.")

       No, you're confusing it with "Phn'glui mgl'wnafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgahn'agl fhtagn !" which is the welsh for "I've just charged that stupid American ninety quid for a Chinese-made fake love-spoon !"
