Shortly before the start of the European Football Championship you can see them more and more: Cars with a national flag on the roof. But if you show your flag, you should consider a few things, especially when driving to neighboring countries.
Attaching customary fan flags during the European Football Championship in Switzerland and Austria is basically not a problem. However, the flags must be firmly anchored and must not impair the driver's view. The ADAC pointed this out on Thursday.
In Switzerland in particular, this is a very specific process. The Swiss insist on attaching the country flags only to the rear side windows. In addition, the flags have to be removed when driving on the autobahn, as they could come off at high speed and endanger the following traffic.
As the ADAC notes, the pennants and mascots on the inside rearview mirror have no place. Labels and other stickers on the windscreen, the side front windows and on the lighting and signaling systems are also taboo. If the vehicle only has one exterior mirror, the rear window must also remain free.
Pay attention to traffic safety
Fans should always keep in mind that traffic safety will not be affected. For example, it is forbidden. to hold large-format flags on long poles out of the window. In the event of an accident, the insurance will only cover damage. If the flags have been properly installed. (AG)
