A new law in France aims to crack down on drunk driving.

Disposable breathalyzer

Effective July 1st, 2012, all motorists in France will be required to have a disposable breathalyzer kit in their car for use for a self-check that they are not driving over the limit after drinking alcohol (Holidaymakers in France told to carry breathalysers in their cars, 21 February 2012, Daily Mail).

Auto Europe, a leader in worldwide car rental services, ensures that all rental vehicles that they contract include safety equipment such as road flares, reflective triangles and now, with the new ruling in France, mandatory breathalyzers in all passenger vehicles at any of the 1,500 locations in the French provinces that they service.
