English term or phrase: hood tent
"Place the cone or hood tent in a conspicuous location at the front, driver’s side of the vehicle or on the hood directly in front of the driver’s seat." The hood tent looks like a marker that you put on the hood of your car as a warning. It is plastic. It is not an actual tent. It is bright orange and sometimes referred to as a 360-degree hood tent. I is American in origin. Help!!

Je ne sais pas s'il y a un équivalent en français. Je me demande si tipi de sécurité (à placer sur le capot) marcherait aussi. En tout cas, tent doit se distinguer de cone, car il doit plus ressembler à un tripode ou un tipi.
