Most of the highway trucks here use 200', though I've yet to see anyone take heed. They are full width and reflective orange on the back of spreaders. Might be easiest to have them made up, but I do remember seeing them in a highway safety catalog somewhere. I'll poke around my catalog collection and try to find them.

I have a reflective orange KEEP BACK 50' sign on the back of my spreader :D but I have to wipe it off after each lot as it gets covered in salt dust :( I'll take a pic of it sometime today & before & after salting ;)

I got mine out of a safety catalog last yr., I'll look up the invioce as to where & how much ;) It was aluminum & I figure it's just another way to cover my a$$ if I would end up in court as to show I tried to warn the public to keep out the way.

You can make your own,just stick some cut vinyl on a peice of aluminum or plastic.

I'm going to be doing up some signs for people here soon,so if you want,let me know what you want,and I'll cut the vinyl for ya.

I had a local sign shop make me a sign. It's a good liability defense when someone says something fell off your truck and damaged their windshield.
