Today again about our cars. For those who like to feel uncomfortable, adhering to speed limits, the radar detector is irreplaceable. About him, darling, and we’ll lead our conversation.

What is the alphabet of the motorist’s light warning system?

There are no descriptions of this alphabet of light signaling in any “correct” textbook.

Let the details of these small, but their breakdown when jerking from the ground or even “jump” on a small pothole fraught with “loss” of the wheel and a serious accident.
