Question Euro-Oppos...

As you all know I like slow, basic and small vehicles like my beloved FIAT 126p. I also like the Piaggio Ape...because I apparently like things even crappier than the 126p :P

Now....the 126p is a speed machine compared to the Ape. 126s can top around 110kph, while Apes can

I’ve noticed on my wallpaper searches for Apes that several of them seem to have diagonal red stripes painted on the front and/or back. I’m THINKING it’s just an Italy thing that sortof maybe means ‘slow moving vehicle’ like our specialized ‘slow moving vehicle’ symbol here in North America:

Stripes like this:


Curious if this stripe thing is common in the rest of Europe as well?
