    if you're driving your car and put the indicator on and no other drivers are around to see it, does it still flash?

    If a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it falling, does it make a sound?

    I was making a point (perhaps a bit unclear one) that the given problem is the same as the one I posted which has been posted here a million times.

    I have just tried this experimentally. With my car in the garage and no other drivers around I put the indicator on. I could clearly see the reflection of the indicator flashing!!!

    I expect my Nobel Prize in the post.

    But you are a driver. The question is really, can an indicator come on if no driver is around to see it.

    If however the car in question is a BWM the whole discussion becomes purely academic as everyone knows that BMW's are incapable of indication.
