Cyclists or pedestrians are often overlooked because they are moving in the blind spot of large and heavy vehicles. France has prescribed blind spot warnings for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes since the beginning of the year.

> Mobile homes over 3.5 tons are also affected

> Labeling must be visible on the sides and on the rear

> The new regulation also applies to foreign vehicles

The new regulation on the "blind spot" sticker applies to all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes and therefore also to larger mobile homes .

W2Go,

This has been discussed over the last few days https://forums.outandaboutlive.co.uk/forums/Motorhomes/Motorhome-Matters/Blind-spot-signage-for-heavy-duty-vans/57306/

I'll freeze this post so all replies go to the original thread.
