Conspicuancy tape reduces night time crashes

20 January 2008

Reflexite will launch its new marking tape, Reflexite VC104+ on its stand 18-240 at the CV Show on 15 April.

The new tape is approved to ECE104. The firm says research by the US Department of Transport shows that vehicles fitted with retro-reflective tape have 41% fewer night-time accidents. The firm says that in 2009 a new law across Europe will mean 'conspicuity tape' on all new and in-service heavy vehicles from 7.5 tonne rigids and 3.5 tonne trailers. Staff on its stand at the CV Show will be happy to give practical advice.
