WHICH CAR CARRYING RACK WONT COVER LICENSE PLATE?
May 20, 2006
Back to questions
I am looking for a cycle carrier
that will not obscure my vehicle number plate. I have found
two different types but am not sure which one is the best.
One is from Halfords, which holds
up to 3 bikes, and the other is the Avenir Arizona. Which
is the better brand, please? Thanks.
Whether a carrier obscures your
cars number plate depends as much on the bikes as
it does the carrier. For example, a single bike on a rear
carrier might end up in such a position that you can see
the cars number plate between the bikes wheelsbut
once you put a second bike on, one of its wheels covers
the plate. Or it might not. You cant really tell without
putting the particular bikes and carrier onto your car.
The thoughtful folks at Halfords
recommend attaching the number plate to the outer bike.
Hm. Another thought: Dont worry about it until you
get stoppedthen maybe try Halfords idea.
