    From 1st July 2012 it will be a legal requirement for all vehicles being driven in France to carry a breathalyser kit. Motorists can use the equipment to test themselves before they get behind the wheel.

    Europcar France has ordered the Breathalysers and they will be provided in the rental cars around mid July onwards. No additional cost will be applied to the driver.

    It will be mandatory from July, but the fine will only be applied from November if driving without it.

    Motorists having from 50 mg to 80 mg of alcohol in 100 ml of blood, can be fined 135 euros and lose 6 out of 12 points on their driving licence.
