Carry the right breathalyser in France

Jay Nagley

The Institute of Advanced Motorists is warning that up to half of British motorists driving in France this summer are risking a fine because carrying an approved breathalyser is now mandatory.

The issue is the fact that the breathalyser needs to carry the the blue circular NF logo, the French equivalent of the BSI kite mark in the UK. Lots of people are selling breathalysers for use in France, but, without the right logo, they are of no value.
