I don't think it's a legal requirement in the UK?? But I had a first aid kit anyway that I carried in my previous car, which I've just chucked in. I've been a trained first aider for the last 10-15years, so always carried one (I don't think I've ever had one issued with any of my previous new cars)Interesting. Are you not required to have a first aid kit in the car? Over here, it's a finable offence not to have one or to have an epired one.
For one it's the only reason we wind up with one. And maybe it's related to the reason we spend more per capita on healthcare than anyone else and yet have poorer outcomes.are you all meant to be paramedics on demand?
semi seriously why would they mandate carrying first aid kits around?
We keep a torch (us: flashlight) in our car as well as the items you mentioned. Of those, a warning triangle is the only required item to have in the car in Sweden.We've occasionally raided the first aid kit in the car for scuffs and grazes. It's one of those things where it sits there being useless baggage... until it's suddenly not useless and you need to bandage up a cut. We've always had one together with a warning triangle and high vis vest as it just seems common sense.
