Yes, only if your trailer is properly equipped with D.O.T approved Conspicuity Treatment. The Conspicuity Treatment must be installed at locations where the reflex reflector’s are normally required (reference FMVSS-108 paragraph S22.214.171.124).
Conspicuity Tape was required on all new trailers manufactured after December 1, 1993.
Then on March 26, 1999 The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a final rule, which requires older trailers to be retrofitted with a conspicuity treatment. Any trailer manufactured before December 1, 1993 that are 80 inches or more wide and with GVWR of 10,001 or more pounds. The effective date of the final rule was June 1, 1999. Motor carriers are required to comply with the final rule by adding the RED & WHITE conspicuity treatment no later than two (2) years after the effective date of the final rule JUNE 1, 2001.
Motor Carriers that presently have trailers in operation with conspicuity treatment of a color different than RED & WHITE will have until JUNE 1, 2009 to comply.
Alternation RED/WHITE tape on the side and rear of each trailer.
