Reflective jackets compulsory from 1 July 2008
On 13 February 2008, the Inter-Ministerial Committee for Road Safety (CISR) decided to make it compulsory for all vehicles to carry a safety jacket or warning triangle from 1 July 2008 in line with numerous other European countries which have already implemented this measure.
Why has this measure been introduced?
The aim is to improve the safety of road users who find themselves in an emergency situation, enabling drivers to be more visible to other road users when exiting their vehicle and ensuring that vehicles which have broken down or have stopped as a result of an emergency are equipped with improved signage.
£100 fine if you are not carrying one for each passengar!
