wipers on the car go swish swish...I WISH....

As you probably all know Peugeot is a French car manufacturer. As it is made in France, the clever people behind the design of the wipers decided to be "innovative", by making the wipers move in a weird manner. The wipers, when not in use, overlap. So when you initialize them the top one will move to the left and the bottom one to the right. Then the right one will go back to its initial position followed by the left one. The drivers seat is on the RIGHT HAND SIDE in Britain, therefore, when the left one goes back down it sprays all the water that it’s collected back onto the drivers side. How thoughtful. The poor driver cannot see anything as the left one has already moved back down. The left hand side is great, all clear. This is an obvious flaw and is very dangerous when driving it very heavy rain.

Suppose it works fine in France where the drivers side is on the left side, but how hard could it have been to change the wipers around?

Thank you Peugeot.

Hope you understand what I am trying to say...
