It is always advisable to carry a first-aid kit. It is compulsory for all drivers, including visitors, to carry a warning triangle. Remember, however, that if these items are kept on the rear shelf they can become dangerous projectiles in the event of an accident.

If there is no more room in the boot any items of equipment or pieces of luggage inside the car should be stowed carefully and securely.

If there is so much luggage in the back of the car that the view through the rear window is obstructed it is a wise precaution, as well as a statutory requirement to have an outside mirror on the passenger’s side. This is useful in any event when driving in heavy traffic on multi-lane highways. It should be of convex type.
