BEST reflectors PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!
The reflectors on your vehicle are an important safety feature and are built into the front and rear and often along the side of the vehicle as well. Here we explain more.
Your vehicle's reflectors are an important safety item that enables other road users and pedestrians to see your vehicle when in low light conditions and poor weather. It's a legal requirement when using your vehicle at night that you have two reflectors fitted to the vehicle; having insecure, missing or damaged reflectors is illegal and the vehicle will fail its MOT. It's also important to appreciate that the reflectors you have fitted must work as intended as this too could be an MOT failure - and bring your vehicle to the attention of the police.
Fitting reflectors to a vehicle
One reason for fitting reflectors to a vehicle is that oncoming traffic will see your vehicle when it's parked in bad or dark conditions and the reflectors will light up to indicate its presence. The reflectors also work to alert other road users to your vehicle's presence in adverse weather, including heavy snow and fog. Car reflectors come in all sorts of shapes and colours and consist of a range of mirrors. Each mirror in the reflector will reflect the light at the angle that it hits that particular mirror, so a passing vehicle will hit different mirrors within the reflector at different times - and helps explain why they work at a distance and from various angles.
Reflectors are also available for fitting to trailers, caravans and camper vans and they can either be screwed into a surface or be stuck on using adhesive pads. Some people also use car door protectors that have reflectors fitted and some reflectors for trailers and caravans are red triangle-shape to warn motorists that they will need more time and distance to overtake.
Reflectors are also available for motorbikes
Reflectors are also available for motorbikes and some outlets will offer a car safety warning reflective tape so it's possible to fit this tape where it is needed. It's also possible to buy tape that is quite slim and in various colours to fit to cars or motorbikes if they are left on dark roads with speeding traffic passing by - the reflective stickers will essentially light up to warn a passing motorist that there is a car or motorbike in their path. If you are looking for reflectors to fit to a classic or vintage vehicle, then you may need to shop around to find the exact size and fit of the original equipment. Also, there is a wide range of reflectors available should you be modifying your car and you will still need to have reflectors fitted for your car to be road legal, regardless of the modifications you make.
