Finland checklist car: what is mandatory in the car in Finland?

Did you know that when you drive a car in Finland, you are required to have a warning triangle and safety vest with you? We have listed the things that are mandatory in the car.

Mandatory in the car: checklist Finland

  • Warning triangle – It is mandatory to have a warning triangle in the car.
  • The use of a warning triangle in the event of a breakdown or an accident is only mandatory if the car outside the built-up area is not visible to other traffic in time (for example in the dark, in poor visibility or because of a bend or hill).
  • Place the warning triangle at a sufficient distance (100-200 m) behind the car.
  • Note: It is prohibited to move or delete another person’s warning triangle without permission.
  • Safety vest – It is mandatory in certain cases to wear a reflective safety vest.
  • Anyone walking along the road in the dark, in dim light or in poor visibility is required to wear a reflector, clothing with reflective stripes or a reflective safety vest.
  • We therefore advise drivers to bring a safety vest in the car for all occupants.
  • In Europe, a reflective vest must comply with the EN 20471: 2013 standard (fluorescent yellow, orange or red and provided with retro-reflective strips).
  • A first-aid kit, a fire extinguisher and spare bulbs are not required.

Advice

  • Note: When renting a car, always check that the mandatory equipment (warning triangle) is present and provide safety vests for all occupants.
  • Also check which safety equipment is mandatory in the countries you will be traveling through.
