Required safety equipment in cars could undergo changes. Replacement bulbs and fuses could replace the list of what drivers have to carry in the car. Some Members are inclined to do so. According to them, cars are as unnecessary as most drivers can not or can not replace them. At the same time, they want to unify mandatory equipment in Europe. However, there are some experts.
Replacement light bulbs and fuses, spare wheel or tire repair kit, warning triangle, reflective vest, car kit and key wheel nuts. The mandatory equipment is that every driver must have in his car. However, according to some deputies, the first three listed items might have disappeared.
MEPs have just been discussing it and have not reached any official conclusion.
“There is no problem with replacing the light bulb with other vehicles, considering that in the case of diminished visibility, if I break the light that is facing the road, I can not continue driving,” says politician Martin of BESIP.
Some experts would not be releasing the hiver and the spare wheel. According to them, it is not a problem for the driver to replace the damaged tire himself. According to experts, a fire extinguisher could be included in the mandatory equipment in the Czech Republic. He is required in Greece, Croatia, Bulgaria or Romania. Denmark only recommends it.
The Czech Republic and Slovakia are the last countries where spare fuses and incandescent lamps are mandatory. However, according to traffic safety experts, only the most recent cars, which the driver virtually can not manage, are driving on Czech roads. The average age of cars is fifteen years for us.
