    Default Rear Slow moving vehicle sign question

    I have a Ls XR4046 with a cab and the thing was in the way big time. So I took it off. My question is ( I guess it could be dependant upon state) can I get suction cups and stick it on the inside of the glass if I get on the road? I guess I could stick it on the outside but if it falls off may not know it. Got a cousin that is a Sherriff and he said he didnt think it would matter.

    I don't see what the problem would be as long as it is visible from the rear.

    There may be other sections of Alabama law that would apply, but this section implies you would be OK:



    When operated, propelled, driven, towed, pushed or otherwise moving over, along or across any highway in this state, every vehicle which has a maximum potential speed of 25 miles an hour, implement of husbandry, farm tractor or special mobile equipment shall be identified with a reflective device as follows:

    (1) An equilateral triangle in shape at least 16 inches wide at the base and at least 14 inches in height, with a bright red border, at least one and three-quarter inches wide of highly reflective beaded material;

    (2) A center triangle, at least 12 1/4 inches on each side of yellow-orange fluorescent material.
    (Acts 1971, No. 1186, p. 2048, ァ1.)
    ALA CODE 32-5-246 : Alabama Code - Section 32-5-246: REFLECTIVE DEVICES FOR SLOW-MOVING VEHICLES - REQUIRED; DESIGN

    My only question would be whether the reflective surface would be less effective/reflective should the glass be tinted.
