    Hi all

    Can't find if this has been covered or not?

    I read somewhere recently about new legislation for towing in Spain that requires a reflective sign.
    Does anyone know if there is a specific sign?

    I was thinking of a relflective "LONG VEHICLE" sign, but can't seem to find where to buy one.

    I've got the square one from Fiamma [not reflective] that you can put on bike racks, but don't think this would be good enough.

    Cheers Alice and George

    Does one display these two marker boards horizontal as shown in the HGV Directs web site or can they be displayed vertical?

    copied from another forum, it was advised that the plates have to be metal not plastic or those stickon plastic paper type


    Spanish Regulations for vehicle combinations over 12 meters long
    Any outfit travelling to Spain that is over 12m in length must have one long or two small aluminium boards attached to the back. The aluminium boards must have a yellow centre with a red outline and be reflective, the boards must also comply with ECE70 standards. (We would recommend that you check before purchase that the boards you are buying have the ECE70 mark stamped on them). There are two options available:

    Two marker boards must be placed at the back of the outfit between 50cm and 150cm off the ground, they can be attached horizontally or vertically, and must be symmetrical. Dimensions of the marker boards are 565mm x 200mm

    One large marker board that must be placed at the back of the outfit between 50cm and 150cm off the ground, this board must be attached horizontally. Dimensions are 1130 mm x 200mm.

    Marker boards can be purchased from most HGV suppliers including:

    HGV Direct
    hgvdirect
    Telephone: 0845 686 0008
