      Isn't it mandatory to have at least a reflective road sign at the tip of a extra wide/long load ? Or do they plan to "collect" Fast driving riders at dusk like Light Pole with Night butterflies ?

        They had about 3 or 4 vehicles with them with flashing lights and reflective stripes, they had gone ahead to pick it up outside the airside gate. So they would have one or two in front and behind, they had to take it round to the DHL gates so they could get the thing out and pick up the motorway. I would imagine anything that would of gone on the tail had been left off until they could get it through the gates and round onto the road.
