Red retroreflective and fluorescent orange tape strips should be mounted horizontally, in a side-by-side configuration. One 2"x9" strip of red retroreflective material should be placed on both the far left and right of the equipment. The red strips can't be more than 16" from the equipment extremities.
A 2"x9" fluorescent orange strip should be placed in a line next to each red retroreflective strip. There should be no more than six feet between the fluorescent strips. Additional red retroreflective/orange fluorescent combinations may be added near the center of the equipment. See Diagrams A and B for placement.
Note: If the horizontal distance between red or orange strip combinations exceeds six feet, we recommend another combination of red and orange. You may count the SMV symbol itself as a strip combination.
Front and Sides:
Yellow retroreflective strips (2"x9") should be mounted on the front and sides of the farm equipment. Like the rear retroreflective strips, the yellow strips should be placed no more than 16 inches from the extremities of the equipment. There should be no more than six feet between strips. However, additional yellow retroreflective strips may be placed near the center of the equipment. See Diagrams A and B for placement.
