Hi Tim
I always thought the the telltale was just that, an indication of a problem if it stopped running. after all when first starting the engine you look for the spurt of water.
ask your new driver how long he was prepared to run the engine with no water coming out, if you consider it the same as the oil light on a car you cant go far wrong. Just how far down the road do you go with the light on.
