When is it compulsory to use the V16 emergency light?
The use of V16 connected road safety beacon will be compulsory from 1st of January 2026, however, the DFT (DGT) recommends starting using them as soon as possible in order to avoid accidents and reduce risk whilst on the road. Since the entry into force of the Royal Decree, drivers in Spain are now allowed to use this road safety beacon instead of emergency triangles.
