Breath test kits compulsory in France

[ June 22, 2012   //   ]

Cross-Channel ferry operators are pointing out that all drivers in France – including truckers – are now required to carry disposable breathalysers in their vehicles. Under a new law that comes into force on 1 July, drivers caught without one will face a €11 fine. The breathalyser kits are available to purchase on board DFDS Seaways and P&O European ferries. The measure was due to come into force last year but was delayed due to the logistics of manufacturing and distributing millions of kits throughout France.
