Most of us are familiar with legal requirements for driving in the UK, however when travelling abroad there are legal requirements regarding certain items that must be carried within the vehicle.
Did you know that carrying a warning triangle in your car is a legal requirement in many countries on the Continent? These counties include France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Austria and Switzerland. In Spain, one warning triangle is compulsory for non-Spanish registered vehicles and two for Spanish registered vehicles. However, drivers of non-Spanish registered vehicles should consider carrying two triangles as local officials may impose on-the-spot fines if there is only one. Don't get caught out; "Consumabulbs Warning Triangles" are highly reflective EC-approved models which warn other drivers of potential hazards in an accident or breakdown situation and come in a protective plastic case.
The French Road Safety Department has confirmed that:
From 1st October 2008 all drivers in France, including drivers of vehicles registered outside of France, must have one warning triangle and one reflective jacket in their vehicle.
This regulation, which we understand does not apply to two and three wheeled vehicles, will be enforced with on-the-spot fines of between €90 and €135.
It is now compulsory in many European countries for visiting motorists to carry/wear reflective jackets.
In addition, as they are compulsory for residents in Norway and Portugal we would recommend that they are carried by visitors too.
It is recommended that each vehicle carries at least two jackets/waistcoats in the passenger compartment - one for the driver and one for a passenger.
