    I'm wondering what happens if you cover up the radar sensor with a mesh oversize sign. I had an older truck with a deer guard. Now I'm driving a 2020 Volvo with adaptive cruise and auto braking. It's put the sign there or at the head light level, but it would cover the headlights.... So it would have to have the ends rolled up not too cover head lights

    No issue. Just keep it from flapping. It will sometime cause an error when it gets wet or snow covered. IMG_6022.jpeg

    They are just the regular quick mount flags. They should sell them at tarp stop. IMG_6640.jpeg

    I have those behind my bumper, actually I’ve got a small duffel bag for all the over sized stuff from Amazon, keeps it somewhat organized for when I need it

    Best advice I have, never, ever, get in a vehicle that can alter your ability to control it. Period.

    Only thing I know about oversize is that THEY always have the right of way. the other driver has to get out of the way, at least that's the way I played it from 1993 to 2010
