    It appears there is a new French traffic law that comes into effect on 1st July 2008

    All cars in France must be equipped with a fluorescent waistcoat and warning triangle.

    I assume it will mean a fluorescent waistcoat for each person in the vehicle.

    Failure to comply with the new law will result in a fine for each object missing.

    I think most motorhomers will have the required kit especially ones who visit Spain.

    The info is from the O & A site.
