Default Traffic Light Viewer

After Blanes Hood Struts, this is the second best mod for PT Cruisers.




It can be bought for $12.60 from A.J. at:

They sit on your dash: the idea is that the glass refraction from the overhead stoplight (red or green) is visible in this glass.

Alternatively, if you're like me and hate to have things on your dash/hanging from the mirror/whatever, you could just be sure to stop BEGORE you're directly under the stoplight! LOL!

Many cars like the 1957 Chevrolet had a dash-mounted traffic-light viewer, a ribbed plastic visor that was installed just above the speedometer. Because, like the PT Cruiser, the roof extended so far into the windshield, it was hard to see overhead traffic lights from the driver's seat. The traffic light viewer gave the driver the ability to see overhead traffic lights without having to lean forward to see past the edge of the windshield. This one bends the light rather than reflecting it, and is comparitively inexpensive. Edited to add: If you get it from AJ, who is a PT Cruiser owner, than it is part #A5168.

Some of those LED lights are around here. I use them (at night) to anticipate a little bit..Just by looking at the color the ground is, lol.

Thumbs down Re: Traffic Light Viewer

I don't mind "ducking" occassionally, just to avoid dash clutter!
If it were a "Big Problem", I'd get the lens one that actually sticks to the upper part of the windshield (inside).
