    Some rather odd things;

    It is not compulsory to carry a warning triangle in Germany but it is compulsory to use one in an accident/breakdown (where are you going to get one if you don't carry one):Eek!:

    It is recommended to use dipped headlights at all times of the day/year in France (ever seen a French car do this ?)

    It is compulsory to carry a breathalyser in France but there is no penalty for not having one:Eek!:
    There is no requirement in France to carry a first aid kit or a fire extinguisher, both of which IMHO are more useful than a breathalyser.

    also states, wrongly, that a GB sticker is compulsory throughout Europe.

    if your number plate is a Euro approved one it already has GB on it and is sufficient.
