All drivers in France may be required to carry breathlyzer kits in their cars from Spring 20112
New planned legislation recently announced by the french president recently will require all drivers in France to keep breathalyzer kits in their cars to test themselves. The new planned requirement is a move by the french to cut the number of deaths on the french roads . Under the new plans anyone stopped and found not to have a breathalyzer kit in their car will be fined.
Decriminilising Cannabis-a good or bad idea-the debate continues
Last month an ex MI5 boss gave a speech to a all party parliamentary drug group & urged the goverment to consider decriminalising Cannabis
We are having a lot of questions at www.valuebreathalysers.co.uk this week from UK companies & businesses about single use disposable breathalyzer kits.
I think it must be a combination of the the office party season & the announcement by the french president earlier this month that car drivers in france will be required to carry breathalyzer kits in their cars from Spring 2012
We received this question about disposable breath alcohol detectors in the workplace by telephone this week.
‘We want to test our fork lift drivers randomly for alcohol. We are looking at the disposable breath alcohol detectors. Can you please advise which sensitivity we should go for.’
Because a fork lift driver is a professional driver and is operating machinery in a workplace, then you need to go for the 0.02% or zero tolerance breath alcohol detectors.
From Spring 2012 every driver in France may be required to carry a breathalyzer kitin their car or face fines , after an announcement earlier this week by french president Nicolas Sarkozy.
The new planned legislation is part of a drive to reduce the deaths on french roads by increased safety measures including drivers being able to check their alcohol levels before driving.
The EU drink driving prosecution levels are lower than the UK’s at 0.05% BAC
Research by the french road safety association has shown that alcohol is the biggest factor in road deaths so this move from the french president is an attempt to cut road deaths by making drivers more aware of their alcohol levels.
We received this question asking which is the best breathalyser earlier this week:
‘My teenagers have just passed their driving test & are borrowing the car. I want to make sure they are not drinking and driving when they are going out in the evenings. They have promised they won’t but I know they are susceptible to peer pressure and I want to be sure. Which breathalyzer would you recommend ?’
