    Driven down a few narrow streets lately and seen a few parked vehicles with a red and white triangle that is attached to either the drivers or passengers door. The said triangle protrudes into the road so that when you are passing the stationary vehicle it makes you go round it slightly wider. They are also reflective so can been seen from a distance.

    Been searching on Google and eBay for the last hour trying to find out what they are called as I'd like to get one for when I park in narrow streets but for the life of me I can't find them.

    Does anybody have one or know exactly what they are called?
