I have up dated-my old (20yr) A frame to comply with the 4 wheel braking system, I was going to post Pics but I would be inviting comments, Heath Robinson, Wallis&Grommet spring to mind, or just plain :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: But it works!!!!!

I know people who haven't been stopped or fined...

Do you enjoy a flutter?

I think Spain is breaking EU law by fining fellow members when their vehicles comply to the law in their own country but I suspect no one is rufty tufty enough to take them on...

Rise up and take on the Bull Bulliers...

Its up to the country you are travelling in to decide if they allow A frames or not. :mad:
See this Eu parliamentary question.

and the relpy

The Spanish and the Germans dont like it and you may be stopped and fined.
I have in the past towed mine in Spain but do not take the chance any more, its roulette !!
Hope this helps (y)

Cost me €40 4-5 years back near Lleida was a lot more but after a lot of argument and him going through his rule book he saw that I didn't have the over run brake cable attached(ex AA .a bar) mate who's car I was towing paid the fine and he gave up and left after making us detach the car. Not bad I suppose towed from roscoff and another few miles to ampolla & we would have got away with it :cry:

JJ, m'boy....does that also include driving while wearing sandles/flipflops/jesus boots/desert brogues....driving without a spare pair of specs (if worn)......driving with one arm resting on the window ledge.....driving without yellow bibs/vests.....all directly breaking the law in Spain but not here in the UK and probably every other euro state as well.

1 and 3 could be used as a reason here for not being in control but that is a separate
offence.

my opinion is.....you drive on their roads, you drive by their laws.
