"Regulation 100(2) Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986, The load carried by a motor vehicle or trailer shall at all times be so secured, if necessary by physical restraint other than its own weight, and be in such a position, that neither danger nor nuisance is likely to be caused to any person or property by reason of the load or any part thereof falling or being blown from the vehicle or by reason of any other movement of the load or any part thereof in relation to the vehicle."


"Test to apply to establish if the offence is complete

What may be perfectly acceptable under some conditions may be an offence under others, so the following variables should be taken into account –

a. The nature of the journey

b. The way in which the load is secured

c. The way in which the load is positioned

d. The journey to be taken"


that help?

as above really ian..as long as its secure,the number plate can still be read and its not obscuring the rear lights,and if its too long..ie hanging out rear end...it has some sort of warning on it like a hi vis vest tied to the end or warning triangle etc...you shouldnt have any problems.
