Why Reflective Conspicuity Tape On Trailers?
Reflective conspicuity tape is the reflective tape on the side of the truck body, can reflect the frame of the truck body in poor light situations, achieve the aim of warning.
Why does the trailer need reflective tapes?
Hard Speed control
According to the Newton’s second law of motion: F=ma.
The acceleration of an object is proportional to the force, inversely proportional to the mass of the object, and proportional to the reciprocal of the mass of the object; the direction of acceleration is the same as the direction of the force.
Simply, the truck has a big weight, thus if you want to low the speed of the truck, you need big more force to reduce speed, and it is not easy to do in a short time because the truck has a big weight.
So the small vehicles need to keep a safe distance between the truck so that the small vehicle can avoid making a collision with a truck to result in long-distance pushing.
Parabolic problems for the products on the truck
Of course, the products on the truck also have parabolic problems, to enhance the visibility of the trailer is very necessary for the drivers around the truck.
The truck has a big volume, the reflective tape can show the frame of the truck at night, remind of the drivers behind it. If the drivers only can see the truck from its reflective license plate or headlight, it would be late to avoid the collision.
