Safety Flag – Simpson Desert Compliant

IMG_1205

Roadsafe 4WD Sand Safety Flags give drivers a greater chance of seeing approaching vehicles and minimise the risk of accidents when cresting dunes. That is why there is now a Simpson Desert requirement to attach a sand flag when crossing the Simo.  The Sand Flag is supplied in three 1m long pole pieces, that screw together to give the height required. Depending on where you mount it on the vehicle, you have the option of 1, 2 or 3 pieces to get you to the required height. Easy to store too, with the supplied bag, in 1m sections. The flag poles are fibreglass, for strength and flex, with PVC coating for protection and durability. Supplied complete with stainless fittings, including quick release snap on base and 300×300 high vis flouro orange double stitched flag, with reflective silver cross. Simpson Desert compliant, the Roadsafe 4WD Sand Safety Flag is what you need for that next trip across the Simo. (go East-West, it’s way more fun!)

PLEASE DO NOT EXCEED 60kmh WHEN THE SAND FLAG IS INSTALLED.  The flag will whip & bend (as per it’s design function), and with the combination of vehicle speed & prevailing head wind, you might damage your vehicle (the flag might hit the roof – literally!).  This is not as a result of the flag/pole manufacture – it is as a result of incorrect use.  Please remove the flag for highway & speed driving.  Common sense needs to prevail!!!!  It is a Safety Flag, designed for high visibility when cresting sand dunes.  Please drive sensibly, and remove the flag for highway or speeds greater than 60kmh.
