so you dont need it for france as im going by car in a month and wanted any advice thanks
Mixed opinions about the breathalyser. I was told a friend got fined for not having one, but another friend swears blind you don't need it! Considering they are only a few quid on amazon and eBay, better to have it. We went to France last week (had the b&q £5 kit, but the spare bulbs cost a fortune) this deal is Def worth it.

​There's no enforceable penalty for not having one. They used to be able to fine you, but since January 2013 that power was suspended. This should explain all theaa.com/mot…tml . Crazy idea to have breathalysers anyway, they're not accurate enough to be relied upon, plus your alcohol levels can still increase after you stop drinking and potentially after you've taken the test, as your body continues to absorb through your gut. They're a dangerous gimmick nothing more. Think the French have now realised this.
Vienna Convention. You arguably don't need any of this if you already have a UK badge on your plates. Signatory countries recognise the legality of vehicles from other countries. Simple en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…fic

To be fair, £7 to avoid having a inter-language argument with an up-himself foreign Police officer at the side of the road whilst your wife mutters "I told you so" and your child is crying in the back, I'd rather carry a little black bag behind my driver's seat with these in.

High-Vis should be a requirement in the UK too. As well as warning triangles. Most modern cars have them now anyway, but on the non-lit foreign motorways, I'd rather be seen than ran over if I have to exit my car in an emergency.
And the first aid kit is kinda handy.
And people who drive around with blown headlights / brake lights annoy the s%^ out of me - maintain your car, it's for your and my safety! I don't want to drive into the back of you because you haven't checked your brake lights all work, thank you very much!

We also like trying to spot "double GBs" - people who still put on the GB magnetic plate, even though they have the blue GB symbol on their number plates (fools!).
All part of the fun of driving holidays abroad

Just back from France and is only an offence if you carry a used one, ODD!! same as UK with a spare wheel, you can get charged if spare is illegal however if you have no spare. NO CHARGE

Who told you that?
There's no penalty in the uk for carrying a bald spare - I'd be astonished if there's a separate offence of carrying a used breathalyser in France. Possibly you (or whoever told you) are confused because under the original law you were supposed to carry 2?
