I also completely forgot to add:

Jimmy Tarbuck's 'Big book of jokes'
Tom O'Connor's 'How to keep a captive audience entertained'
Tickling stick

This should make the complete collection of items a little more understandable, i.e. it's not an abduction kit.
Well it is sort of, but not in the Peter Sutcliffe modus.

Years ago the story goes that Italian police had to stop sending the photos taken by speed cameras of the front seat of speeding cars along with the ticket to the offender's home address, because too many of the wives would detect an unfamiliar (to them) lady riding in the passenger seat with their husbands.

Is this what you carry? :poke:

Understood was the French who had to make their Speed Cameras only rear facing because of this...

generally have a rain mac, hi vis, and the car's tyre kit but that's about it really..

That said the van is usually the opposite, battery pack, heavy duty trolly, bike ramp, ratchet straps, a coat, roal of garage cloths, some sort of bag, spare shoes, small tool kit, small detailing kit, wheel brace and there's probably more!

Hope
and a prayer,
but the rattle's still there.
Oh the despair,
It's just not fair...
