Hi all, my wife received the following information from her firms HR dept.
We would like to inform you that as of 1st July 2012, it will be mandatory for any driver in France to carry an alcohol breathalyser test kit in their car. The French Government is introducing this obligation in a bid to raise awareness of the dangers of drink-driving.
The alcohol test, which is relatively inexpensive, is a simple device made up of a tube and bag, which indicates whether a person is safe to drive a car or not.
Motorists in France are already obliged to have a warning triangle and fluorescent safety vest with them at all times and, from November 2012, French Police will begin fining anybody who is caught without a breathalyser test in their car.
Is this true and where would I get one of these units .??
