Motorists Risk Serious Accidents By Ignoring European Road Safety Laws

‘The complete European Travel kit’

Motorists have to carry road safety products when driving in most European countries to remain legal.

Motorists driving in some European countries need to carry a warning triangle, spare bulbs, first aid kit, yellow jacket and a fire extinguisher. The French and Spanish rules are very strict and on the spot fines are rigidly enforced.

British motorists do not need to carry any safety products at home. Thousands of accidents could be prevented. Motorists are often killed when they stop at the roadside because they don’t have a warning triangle or yellow jacket. Blown bulbs are the cause of fatal accidents and fires could be avoided by carrying a fire extinguisher.

A Complete ‘European travel Kit’ has been developed to include the motorist legal requirements when travelling to any European country and would bring added safety to motorists in the UK. The Travel Kit includes a warning triangle, spare bulb and fuse kit, yellow jacket, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, plus a headlamp deflector’s kit and a GB sticker which is essential for European motorists. A tyre fix aerosol that can seal a flat is also included, due to the fact that nearly 10% of all vehicle breakdowns are due to a puncture.

The kit is supplied in a compact carry case with Velcro backing to secure it in the boot of any vehicle, ready for immediate use.

Motorists travelling to European Ski resorts should also be warned that travelling without Snow Chains is a criminal offence and can result in an on the spot fine, rejection from entering the resort and a ruined holiday - apart from the obvious risk of being stuck in snow or involved in a serious accident.

‘The complete European Travel kit’ costs £69. The “Three minute snow chain kit” is priced at £59 or £79 depending on tyre size. Free 48 hour carriage is offered anywhere in the UK - visit www.carparts-direct.co.uk
