    In some countries it's obbligatory. Which one do you have and were do you put it in the Roadster? Mine is taking to much place.

    I just push the button inside the car...mine flashes...:biggrin::wink:

    Not mandatory to carry one in Canada, but might be a good idea.

    Flares would have a smaller footprint.

    Filmer GmbH does have one that folds to a very small size and weighs less than 500g. I used to have this one in Germany that was legal in all EG countries: Filmer Warndreieck It was about the smallest I could find. As to where to store it, I can only suggest double sided tape to the inside of the trunk lid.

    They have collapsible warning triangles. Google it. I was in Spain last year and our rental Renault had a flat 2 Km from the Marques de Riscal. I donned my orange vest, set up the triangles and went to work. It was ammusing because my girlfriend was laughing at me before our trip because I was watching a few YouTube videos about driving in Spain (signage, right of way, using the roundabouts, breakdown proceedures, speed laws, etc). I wish we had such requirements in the States.
