What should your security kit contain

The mandatory equipment contents of the car safety kit. To drive on the roads of France, vehicles have a legal obligation to be equipped with a car safety kit. The Highway Code has made the following equipment mandatory:

1. Fluorescent safety vest

It must be present in the cabin of the vehicle and be placed in an accessible place, which allows taking it without having to go out. This excludes the safe.

2. A warning triangle

In order to comply with the safety standards imposed by the Highway Code, the warning triangle must be approved with a marking E 27 R. During a breakdown or an accident, it must be positioned at a distance of at least 30 meters from the vehicle or obstacle to report. Note that the vest and triangle kit must be used as soon as the car is immobilized for emergency reasons. Failure to comply with this obligation is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros.

3. The breathalyzer

Mandatory since July 2012, it can be a chemical or electronic model, but must meet NF standards or their equivalent. If the breathalyzer must be in working order, its absence is not sanctioned.

4. Non-mandatory but essential equipment

While some facilities are strictly mandatory and their absence may be punished by a ticket, others are just as essential, such as:

The spare wheel

The box of bulbs

These two objects are not part of the mandatory car safety kit. However, their absence can expose to sanctions:

Driving with a defective tire is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros and the immobilization of the vehicle. The law requires you to change or have a defective light bulb changed immediately, on pain of a fine of 180 Euros.

The recommended equipment for your safety and that of others

While not essential, some equipment can be very useful. In addition, they are most often inexpensive and not bulky. Among these, we find: The pharmacy box

The pharmacy box can be very useful for practicing first aid in a road accident. It can also be used to treat small injuries during a long journey. It can be essential in the event of a roadside failure during the cold season. It is also effective in protecting an injured person in an accident that you witnessed.

Disposable gloves, latex or vinyl

They will prevent you from getting your hands dirty in case of mechanical breakdown for example. The purchase of this equipment is left to the discretion of each car owner. It must be remembered, however, that some of them can save lives, including yours. In the event of a car accident, be aware that all the information relating to your insurance contract is on your green insurance card, which you must keep with the documents and safety equipments of your vehicle.
