As we reported last year, the French Goverment passed new legislation requiring all cars travelling on French roads to carry a breathalyser kit.
The law came into force on July 1st 2012, but a continuous shortage of kits made available to buy, meant this requirement was not enforced until March 1st 2013.
They are now available in quantity. If you are planning to take your car across to France, make sure you purchase one, ideally before you arrive. You can now buy them at your local Halfords store, Halfords Online or via www.alcosense.co.uk.
