World's Strangest Traffic Laws
Having Emergency Equipment, Turkey
It’s a good thing to
have an emergency reflective triangle, first-aid kit, and fire extinguisher in
your trunk. But honestly, when was the last time you checked your rental to see
if those things were stowed there? If you’re caught driving in Turkey without them, expect a fine. You’ll find similar rules throughout Europe and
elsewhere around the world.
Penalty: It’s always a good idea
to check your rental car’s trunk before driving off, if only to confirm that
you have a good spare tire and jack. While you’re at it, look to see if there’s
an emergency kit, as local rules call for. Figure on a fine of $35 if you’re
caught without one.
