Additional sign: If the windscreen wiper is active while the vehicle is in motion, any traffic sign, for example with the additional In wet sign that now applies will be moved left to the first position. 3. position: an additional traffic sign that does not always apply will be displayed in the third position, e.g. overtaking temporarily not permitted   C.
