Just heard on the news that as from the 1st July you need to take your own breathalyser to France as a legal requirement,Thought it was April fools day sadly not. Personally i will just be taking my garlic and cross as usual.

I don't think it is enforced until Nov.

I've just bought one from Halfords. It's very small. They're going to be difficult to use pissed. biggrin

It won't be enforced yet, that's correct.
There is also a national out of stock problem, so the French authorities should be compliant...

Cheers from France!

How does this work, they say you need 2 breathalysers so that if the Gendarme makes you use one at the side of the road, you still have a spare.

So on a long trip, Gendarme 1 stops you and you use breathalyser, an hour later in a different area Gendarme 2 stops you and books you for only having 1 unused breathalyser. You pay your on the spot fine and Gendarme 3 stops you ...........

They are gonna rake in a fortune during next years Le Mans!

They won't ask you to use your ones, they supply the ones they test you with on the road.

You are asked to carry them so you cannot say you had no way of knowing you were over the limit.

Ok so you come out of Le Bistro, test yourself, you are not over the limit, you drive on and get stopped "Bonjour, show moi deaux breathalysers sil vous plait"....."Oh la la, monsieur only has une breathalyser unused, Monsieur et nicked"
