Have any motor maufacturers/maindealers/motor factors in Ireland stated that they will provide permanent stickers, for speedo dials, due to the new metric changes ?
i.e. a transparent sticker with kms marked on it, which you would simply stick onto the dashboard cover directly over the speedo.
Every house is getting delivery of a little card with details and it includes 2 stickers for your dash with conversions on it. Not exactly what you're looking for I know, but it should suffice.
I would say you would be better to buy a proper Km speedo face and get it fitted.
Silvera...to hell with it..buy an 05 !!
Surely to get a KM dash fitted would cost quite a bit? Isn't in pretty labour intensive to get to that past of the dash.
Seriously, folks, you'll get used to the equivalents after a few days, believe me. Haven't any of you driven on the continent before?
just use a calculator like that chap on the news said,
theres probably one on your phone........
And if you can text whilst driving should be no prob using the calc....
.....it's not that hard to see the KMph on the dash, anyway you can still drive in Miles ph!!!
yeah - they would be inaccurate due to the parallax effect (i think)
any the equivalents are very easy to remember
60k=40m (actually 37)
the 60k limit is the one to be careful with as its slightly less than the previous equivalent, but then again the chance of being clocked going 3 mph over the limit (or indeed going any amount over the limit or committing any other motoring offence) is very small.
so will the guards be a little more leniant when it comes to drivers who are slightly over the limit when this thing comes into play?
I would doubt it - it is a great opportunity for them to flex their muscles!
I got a ticket for doing 43 in a 40 zone. Woops
