A stupid question for a Sunday morning........ :redface: Must a yellow ribbon only be tied to the drivers side mirror or also on the passenger side???

Nothing stupid about the question :D

We tie one on each...if you are parked on the righthand side of the road a passing vehicle may not see the drivers mirror.

Also if you are parked at waterhole facing the waterhole a vehicle pulling into your left may not see it.

Our very first YR we saw was a bag, when we pulled into such a parking lot formation at a waterhole. A mite then pulled in between us. 8)

Neither we nor the third mite were flying ribbons :redface: :redface: We have since (always).

On a recent visit to Kgalagadi, and proudly flying my yellow and red ribbons, met Paintbrush with his yellow ribbon displayed and having a fellow ' mite' coming to me - Poekie - and I could help out with extra rbbons for her car, yellow and red.

Great to meet fellow 'mites'. :dance: :D

Go into any shop which sells material - you sure to find they stock yellow ribbon as well.

Florists usually have some. Or any haberdashery store.

Anything yellow will do, even a yellow shopping bag.

I personally don't like the stiff florist ribbon as I find it makes too much noise in the wind.
Rather some soft material or even the yellow rope from an Amarula bottle altho its not really that visible from a distance.
but the brighter the better. :D
