The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, which many countries have signed, sets out only the minimum characteristics of motor vehicles and trailers involved in international traffic. At the same time, it allows a given country to expand and tighten its requirements for vehicles traveling on their roads, so it is worth checking before leaving what additional equipment of the vehicle is in force in a given country to avoid unnecessary discussions with the police about the Vienna Convention.
