What equipment should you have on-board in the event of a car accident?
To be at fault or not - an accident can happen to any motorist. You must think of some essential details and tools before you start your trip, so as to act properly in an emergency: In this regard, for example a reflective vest must be taken along in many countries, so that you and your passengers are identified early by the following road users at the scene of the accident. Therefore, it is advisable to keep such a vest ready for all occupants in your vehicle. It is mandatory to always carry both a warning triangle and a first-aid kit in your car.
