Alcohol breathalyser law suspended
NOT surprisingly, the law requiring motorists to have an alcohol breathalyser in their vehicle has been kicked into the long grass.
Interior minister, Manuel Valls, has postponed the legislation to enable the Conseil National de la Sécurité Routière (CNSR) to look at just how effective the measure could be.
The legislation was set to come into force in the middle of last year, but people found it difficult to buy the kits and so at first it was proposed that drivers would be advised about the rules for the first few months.
Once this date passed it was still proving difficult to track down the kits and so another postponement was put in place.
Now though, Manuel Valls will wait on the report from the CNSR as to whether drivers will require an alcohol breathalyser in their cars.
