French authorities have made the - perhaps sensible – decision to make it a legal requirement for motorists to carry alcohol breathalysers in their car at all times, along with other safety equipment. The decision follows a shift in public opinion against drink-drivers, and ensures that strict French drink-drive limits are adhered to by drivers.
The maximum legal alcohol limit for drivers in France is lower than in the UK at just 0.5% BAC. This means British holidaymakers and day-trippers may be unaware that they are breaking the law.
