Since the approval of Royal Decree 1030/2022 , V16 lights and especially the V16 Connected lights are becoming more and more an indisputable reality on our roads. The increase in victims run over by going out to put the emergency triangle was enough reason to reconsider a change. Since last July 11 , there is a type of vehicle that completely joins the new era of emergency signaling, the motorhome .
On July 11 , the DGT published the new instruction PROT 2023/14 for motorhomes , one of the preferred travel options for many people, especially during the holiday season. The problem is that being a large vehicle makes it a significant risk for the same driver who has to go down to the shoulder to put the triangle . The DGT is aware of this and that is why it has decided to put an end to the emergency triangles in these types of vehicles.
WHAT ADVANTAGES DO THE V16 LIGHTS OFFER AND ESPECIALLY THE CONNECTED LIGHTS?
Emergency light, such as our FlashLED SOS V16 Connected, not only offers more visibility than the triangle , especially at night or in low light conditions, but also eliminates the risk of being struck by the driver with the push of a button without the need for get out of the vehicle. In addition, this type of beacon incorporates a connectivity system to communicate your position to other drivers anonymously through DGT 3.0 . With these factors, we have a device that protects both the driver himself and other road users by being aware at all times of emergency situations that may occur on it.
This change will be the first official regulation of mandatory use for V16 emergency lights, which will represent a significant change in the safety of motorhome users. It should be remembered that as of December 31, 2025 , the new V16 Connected emergency devices will be mandatory for all drivers.
