Wasn't sure if breathalysers are required ; I know it was temporary law in France for a while but cancelled a while back. Won't do any harm to carry them though.

Interestingly the high-viz vest must be "to hand" ; so for example in your door pocket, over the back of your seat. It's no use being in the boot or in the glove-box where you can't reach it. If you're stopped by the police and it's not available to hand, they have the power to fine you.

I'm also sporting M+S tyres all season round ; https://www.asdatyres.co.uk/sailun/a...-atrezzo-z4+as
