A reflectorised triangle is an internationally recognised warning of a breakdown or crash ahead.
In most European countries it is compulsory for motorists to carry a warning triangle. In New Zealand it is not compulsory, but is recommended, especially for heavy vehicles.
The New Zealand Rode Code recommends that warning triangles should be placed approximately 200m on either side of an accident. They should be placed on the side of the road where they are visible to motorists, without obstructing traffic lanes. Anyone can place a warning triangle on the side of the road to warn other drivers of a hazard.
Adsafe has two types of warning triangle. The AW-RWT is a reflective triangle for general use, the AW-LEDWT also incorporates high visibility LED lighting for up to 1000m visibility in low light/night-time conditions. Both triangles are CE rated.
