we should introduce laws for our european counterparts lke they too should where a ping pong jacket when they drive.

Although not law in the UK, I think it good practice and I have carried one for years.(and used it changing a wheel on the hard shoulder of the M1)
However the attitude across the channel is typically French.

I think its a perfectly sound idea.
Don't blame the French because our media are so intraverted they ignore the fact that a fast majority of uk citizens travel on the continent.

I wear a yellow reflective jacket if I have to cycle in the dark, thinking of getting the trousers as well, may look like a kammikazie bannana but thats better than lying in a pool of blood.

It's only a matter of time before it's introduced over here to fall in line with the rest of Europe, after that you won't be able to leave home without wearing a big yellow Mr Blobby suit

"Birmingham council advises its residents that all pedestrians should ‘wear something fluorescent if walking in the daytime’."

I didn't really want to drive on the right in my right hand drive car.

I can not see the rest of europe opting to drive on the left ;o)
