I've come across one or two road tunnels in Europe that have an exploding car sign with LPG written underneath it and got myself into all sorts of trouble trying to avoid them. I can't find any clear info on the net as to what it all means. Is it for vehicles fuelled by LPG or carrying any LPG at all, including for example calor gas bottles? :Eeek::Eeek:

My understanding of the sign is that it prohibits LPG powered vehicles.. but not lpg bottles in motorhomes/caravans.. the same sign can be seen at some French underground car parks and the same rule applies in the Channel Tunnel

Chap on the (shhh) other site posted this:


"I recently had the pleasure of reading the French Highway Code.

Yes, contrary to popular belief, they do have one! It surprised me as well!

The Exploding Vehicles sign is for commercial vehicles carrying hazardous products. Sometimes the type of product is specified below the sign. It does not include private vehicles. "

Interesting and very useful

very interesting indeed!!!!!

if the sign applies to commercial vehicles only and not cars then why show a CAR in the sign and not a truck.

sorry but the 'chap' on the other side is well off the mark.........

here is the sign and its meaning.........ALL traffic carrying flammable materials
