Chevron Fact Details
Important changes governing vehicle conspicuity have been made to the Chapter 8 regulations of the Traffic Signs Manual published by the Department for Transport. The new rules cover vehicle fleets working on, or near, the UK highways, and include the following:
Any vehicle stopping on the highway for work purposes should be of a conspicuous colour (e.g. yellow or white).
Any works vehicles that are used to protect the workforce should be of conspicuous colour and carry appropriate marking.
On high-speed roads, all vehicles stopping on the highway for works purposes should carry high visibility rear markings, including chevrons comprising alternate strips of fluorescent orange-red retroreflective material and fluorescent yellow non-retroreflective material.
The markings should cover as much of the rear-facing portion of the vehicle as possible without obscuring windows, vehicle lighting or registration plates.
Red retroreflective tape should also be applied to all rear facing edges of open doors, guardrails and equipment lockers.
ArtsignsUK has considerable expertise in helping to ensure that companies comply with what can seem a complex set of regulations. It’s essential for the safety of all road users that working vehicles can be seen – if you need help, go to the Contact page.
ECE104 Regulation Vehicle Safety Markings
Are you ready for important new conspicuity regulations impacting on commercial vehicle safety?
From July 2011, the new regulation - called ECE104 - will confirm the use of retro-reflective safety markings on heavy goods vehicles operating throughout Europe.
Fleets running HGVs of 7.5 tonnes or more or trailers of 3.5 tonnes or more, will need to be fitted with retro-reflective vehicle safety markings.
At ArtsignsUK, we are now supplying fully compliant materials and markings that satisfy the rules governing both rigid and curtain sided vehicles.
ECE104 vehicle safety markings require 50mm to 60mm wide strips of highly reflective material to be applied to the rear and sides of vehicles, so that trucks and trailers are more visible to other road users from a distance of up to 1000 metres at night. This ensures that commercial vehicles can be seen by motorway drivers up to 8-9 seconds earlier than would otherwise be the case and as such is a key development in reducing risk on busy roads.
