Make sure you are always prepared for a breakdown by keeping this convenient collapsible warning triangle in your car at all times when you drive.
Even with today’s sophisticated motoring technology, experiencing a car break down is not a thing of the past and most drivers will experience a break down at some stage. Keeping an emergency break down kit in your car can make handling such occasions less stressful.
You need to carry a warning triangle in your car by law in most European countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Austria and Ireland, and if you're driving in Spain you'll need two warning triangles. We recommend that you check local driving rules and regulations before you drive in Europe.
Although having a breakdown warning triangle is not required by law in the UK, it is still a good idea to carry one with you in case you ever experience problems with your car on the roadside. This can be especially frightening in the dark, but a warning triangle can help to alert other road users to your presence while you wait for further assistance to arrive. Breaking down can involve extra risk from passing traffic, so it is important to ensure that you can be seen clearly in all weather and light conditions.
This sturdy breakdown warning triangle can be placed at the roadside to give on-coming traffic notice that there is a broken down vehicle ahead. It has reflectors on one side to reflect the headlights of on-coming traffic to keep you safe and visible and four strong metal legs, which open up for support.
You just need to put the warning triangle on the road at least 45 metres (147 feet) behind your broken-down vehicle on the same side of the road, or use other permitted warning devices if you have them. Always take great care when placing or retrieving them, but never use them on motorways.
When you are happily ready to get back on the road again, this breakdown warning triangle quickly and simply folds flat and is stored in a handy plastic case, so it will take up minimal space in your car boot for easy storage.
