The expiration of the first-aid kits that drivers are required to have in their cars will change. Under the new rules, it will be possible to keep the kits after the expiration date.

This stems from the amendment to the regulation on the operation of vehicles signed by Transport Minister Árpád Érsek (Most-Híd).
