Why should your vehicle have a warning triangle?

Find out why this handy little triangle is a great item to keep in your boot!

While not compulsory, it is recommended that you always carry a warning triangle in your vehicle in case of accident or emergency.

What is a warning triangle and why should you have one?

A warning triangle is a small red triangle, usually made of plastic and metal that has a highly reflective surface. Warning triangles are used to alert other drivers and road users that they are approaching an unexpected stationary vehicle.

Often people will use their Hazard Warning Lights when they breakdown to alert others of the danger. However these are not always visible around bends or over bumps, so having an emergency warning triangle will help to offer advance warning.

How and when to use your Warning Triangle!

In the event of an accident or breakdown you should position your warning triangle at least 45 meters (147ft) behind your stationary vehicle, to allow plenty of warning to approaching drivers.

Be careful when placing and retrieving your warning triangle on the roads as this can be dangerous, especially at night.

Warning triangles can be used on dual carriageways and standard roads however it is advised that you do NOT use them on motorways.

This is because there have been instances of warning triangles being blown onto the motorway and endangering other drivers. It is also hazardous to the person positioning their warning triangles when on the motorway.
