Recognize this sign – SLOW MOVING VEHICLE EMBLEM

Some day (or night) it may save your life. Look for it!

This safety device is required on all slow-moving (25 mph or less) vehicles. Here’s how this SMV emblem can protect you …

By day

During daylight, the bright fluorescent orange solid triangle in the center of the SMV emblem is highly visible. It gains the attention and recognition of approaching motorists at distances exceeding one-fifth mile. They have ample time to slow down to avoid a crash.

By night

At night, the reflective red border of the SMV emblem glows brilliantly in the path of approaching auto head- lights. The unique, hollow red triangle immediately identifies a slow-moving vehicle.
