The next code snippet outputs a message when a vehicle respawns far away from players, above an object.

local function notifyFarRespawnOnMap()
    if isElementWaitingForGroundToLoad(source) then
        outputChatBox("* A " .. getVehicleName(source) .. " respawned above an object which is far away! Find it quick!", 128, 255, 0)
