Over the years, it is reasonable to want to lose our car to adapt to the times and get a newer one, no matter how much we love the first one.
More and more people put their car for sale through digital platforms or even social networks, but there are those who put the “For Sale” sign with the characteristics of the car on its windows.
However, no matter how much practice or how long this method is used, it does not mean that it is appropriate because, in fact, it is not. Placing this type of signs is, in short, illegal and can lead to a fine of up to 1,000 euros for improper and unreasonable use of public roads and this is stated in municipal ordinances.
Driving without removing the sign is a serious offence
If we go a step further, we will not be surprised that there are people who are still behind the wheel without removing the “For sale”. Just as we hang any element on the rearview mirror that makes us invisible when driving, driving with objects attached to the car glass is a serious offense and is stated in article 19 of the General Traffic Regulations: ” The The glass surface of the vehicle must allow, in any case, the driver clear visibility over the entire road where it circulates, without interference from sheets or adhesives. These films are only allowed “on the rear windows if the vehicle has two exterior rear-view mirrors that meet the required technical specifications.”
In addition, as warned by ANCOVE (the National Association of Vehicle Dealers), most branded cars are sold from organized commercial groups. This means, when submitting any problem or damage, the exemption of guarantees covered by the current purchase and sale portal or professional businesses.
