Compulsory Equipment for Europe

Came across this link in another form. Its a handy list of what’s compulsory, what’s recommended and what’s banned across Europe.

This is very interesting. How are replacement bulb and first aid kit rules enforced? What type of reflective jackets are required?

Police can & do stop motorists to check they have everything (never happened to me on the bike but quite a few time in the car). Far more common is that they ask to see them if they have stopped you for anything else.

As for the reflective jackets I think anything from expensive hi-vis motorcycle jackets to your standard €2 hi-vis vest you pick up in a garage will do as long as it meets the European standard (Goggle EN471). I hear that countries where this is compulsory they are very strict on it.

We Americans cherish two concepts that stymie such nonsense.

First: we are innocent until proven guilty.

Second: we don't need to submit to searches without warrants.

No cop in the U.S.A. can force a citizen to answer a
question, or to permit a search of person or baggage.

Maybe the New World can teach the Old World something important.

Cheers!
Keith

I think the GB is for Great Britain.
It used to mean Global Britain.
When Scotland secedes from England it will mean lesser Britain and no longer be compulsory.

Useful, thanks.

Interesting reading the URLs to see where something originates from.

...and you'd hang your hat on that? Perhaps it's time to update your research on the law of search and seizure.

Last summer I did a 10 day ride through the Alps of Germany,Austria, Italy and Switzerland through Edelweiss tours. I remember that we had to have the first aid kits on the bikes but nothing ever said about reflective gear etc..Planing on going back in 2013.
