During daylight, projecting loads should be marked with a red-yellow flag at both the front and the rear.
During darkness, projecting loads should be marked with a white light and a white reflector at the front and a red light and a red reflector at the rear.
A load that projects more than one metre backwards must always be marked.
A load that projects forwards and is not clearly visible must always be marked. A load that projects forwards and is clearly visible must only be marked if it projects more than one metre.
A load that projects sideways does not need to be marked, but it must not project more than 20 centimetres on either side. The total vehicle width, including load, must also not exceed 260 centimetres.
