15.9.3.1  A retroreflective stripe(s) shall be affixed to at least 50 percent of the cab and body length on each side, excluding the pump
panel areas, and at least 25 percent of the width of the front of the apparatus.

15.9.3.1.1 The stripe or combination of stripes shall be a minimum of 4 in. (100 mm) in total width.

15.9.3.1.2 The 4 in. (100 mm) wide stripe or combination of stripes shall be permitted to be interrupted by objects (i.e., receptacles,
cracks between slats in roll up doors) provided the full stripe is seen as conspicuous when approaching the apparatus.
15.9.3.1.3 A graphic design shall be permitted to replace all or part of the required striping material if the design or combination thereof
covers at least the same perimeter length(s) required by
15.9.3.1.

*REAR STRIPES*
