As Peter say`s,,,, best get one...

I know if an attachment sticks out/protrudes further than the original vehicle build, then yes..

But not sure what the extra is..

Anything more than 1m front or back, or 330mm either side.
Although trying telling that to Johnny Halfwit and his overloaded brat-transporter. Saw one last week, a 5 series BMW estate with 5 bikes hanging off the back - you couldn't clearly see much of his lights, or his number plate.

The Fiamma warning sign can be used in any country except Italy, where it has to be of metal construction.
Although the standard Fiamma sign feels very flimsy - could be correx

I am also of the understanding that you need 2 triangles. Not just Spain but generally across Europe. Don't know where I got it from and not sure if it is just a recommendation or if it is indeed a law. Anyway, I have 2 on board just in case.

Is it not 2 triangles and a Hi-Vis for everyone in the vehicle in Spain.

Seem to remember that from driving to Valencia during the volcanic eruption several years ago.

Requirements , Country by country here ..

http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/overseas/countrybycountry.html


triangles in Spain .. also note spare tyre required..

  • Spare tyre – and the equipment to change the tyre or a tyre repair kit.

  •  Warning triangle - one warning triangle compulsory for foreign registered vehicles

    but carrying two is recommended as, in an accident/breakdown situation; local officials may impose a fine if only one is produced. Not required for two wheeled vehicles.

Have we moved from Chevron boards to warning triangle.

I have read that they are required for an overhang BUT if you have a towbar bike rack with lighting and numberplate then it is not counted as an overhang and a board is not strictly necessary.

We always use the plastic one for France and Spain but have read that Italy require an aluminium board( £30 made by Italian company Fiamma ???)and that's expensive.

Can anyone confirm the definition of an overhang.
