I've seen several European (or maybe just specifically Italian??) buses with the little red stripe on the nose underneath one of the headlights. What does this signify? Were they part of a certain fleet or company back in the day, or just coincidence that I've seen more than one like this?

I've seen that before too- and wondered if it called out the side of the steering wheel on commercial vehicles- to quickly signify that it belonged on a particular side (or either side) of the road?

These stripes were only used in Italy, and only on trucks. As far as I know, the stripe indicates a certain kind of license for transport. 1 stripe is for domestic transport, 2 are for international transports.

I was told the stripes were compulsory in Italy when transporting (your own) goods. They were on the front and on the back.

Oh oh, I predict these will become the new, hip commercial version of the magnetic "slow moving vehicle" add-on for the next few years. I'm already making mine Smile
