As of tomorrow, July 1, it will be law to have a bright yellow vest and red triangle in your car at all times to use in case of emergencies. And remember to NOT keep the yellow vest in your trunk because you need to put it on before getting out of the car. The police are going to be doing random checks, and you will have to pay a 135 € fine (though this will not take effect until October 1) if you don’t have both the vest and triangle!
Canaille wanted to be in the picture with the vest… This is “one size fits all – XL” which doesn’t make much sense to me.
This little plastic triangle will magically stop other cars from running into yours on the side of the highway.
Edit: Updated info about fines on July 1, according to this article.
