Will fitting nudge or bull bars affect the brake assist function of my van?

If I fit bull or nudge bars to the front of my 2018 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi, will it affect the function of its brake assist?

We wouldn't recommend fitting bars to the front of any vehicle. Not only could it interfere with the active safety systems, but you'll need proof that they do not pose an additional risk of injury to pedestrians or other vulnerable road users. Since May 2007, it has been an offence for bull bars that have not been approved with UK safety standards to be sold and fitted to cars and vans in the UK.
