Safety marking on working and safety vehicles as per RSA
Working vehicles used for the construction, maintenance and cleaning of roads and road systems and for winter maintenance must be equipped with a red / white / red safety marking according to DIN 30710; this also applies when special rights are granted as per § 35 para. 6 StVO (e.g. driving and stopping on all parts of the road in any direction at any time).
When the RSA was published in 1995, this already standardised the warning features to be used on working and safety vehicles throughout Germany. In contrast to rotating beacon warning lights, the yellow warning lights, lighting cross LK9 or lighting arrow L15 which are also used on such vehicles in addition to the red / white / red warning markings are not, as frequently incorrectly presumed, part of the vehicle lighting system but specified as „additional safety gear“ as per RSA (Part A 7.1 [7e]). They can be used on all working and safety vehicles marked according to § 35 StVO.
