Hi, I have a pair of roof bars and the maximum weight is 75kg, I have had a look around the internet but I can't find any legal advice regarding the maximum length, width and height, does anyone know the law regarding roof racks/bars?
If there is a rearward projection between 1m and 2m, the overhang must be made clearly visible to other road users. If there is a forward or rearward projection exceeding 2m or there is a projection on either side of the vehicle of more than 305mm or the overall width of a vehicle or any lateral (sideways) projection exceeds 2.9m, then Regulation 82 of The Road Vehicle (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 must be complied with.
