There are plenty of things to organise before heading off on vacations to the continent and one of the issues you have to concentrate on is making sure you have all the right items in your car to satisfy the legal demands of the countries you visit.
For example, if you intend to use the highways in France, there are a number of products you might need to stock up on and first aid supplies are among them. An article in the Daily Mail drew attention to this issue, stating: “A fire extinguisher and first aid kit could … be required in the case of an emergency so not to fall foul of a law about assisting in the event of an accident.”
Sticking to the rules
No doubt the last thing you want when you’re trying to enjoy your holiday is to experience run-ins with the law. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to read the information available concerning the driving rules in France before you head off on your trip.
Commenting on the issue of road use across the Channel, the AA’s head of road safety Andrew Howard said: “Driving requirements in France are now quite complicated and the list of things you need to take is beginning to be quite a substantial extra charge to a holiday.”
Changes to the rules
This issue is topical at the moment because of an imminent change to driving rules in the country. As of the beginning of July, drivers in France will be required to carry breathalysers in their vehicles. This is so they can test themselves to ensure they are under the drink-drive limit.
Motorists are advised to carry two so that if they have used one, they will still have an unopened example to show police.
