    isn't it 20m or something?

    I just remember it sounded excessive.

    Then again I couldn't tell you what half the road signs mean so :dontknow:

    Personally, i'd put the bonnet up and stick the hazzards on.
    I wouldnt worry about those triangle things.

    It never came up, yahoo

    I thought it was 100m. I'll have a butcher's.

    Nope - it's 45m, or 147 feet.

    Though I'm sure anywhere at a reasonable distance BEHIND the vehicle would be acceptable. You're not exactly gonna get the yardstick out, are you?
