Please remember everyone, the alcohol limit in Scotland has been reduced to 50mg (I think it's 80mg in England and Wales) so check the kit if you live in Scotland or are planning to visit over the Christmas hols.

The 99p ones will still work the same as any disposable testing kit.

Save yourself 99p, and just not drink, at all! if you're planning on driving.

i personally think you should not drink and drive. However i think these kits are good for the next day to make sure you are safe to drive. Some people think oh i can have a couple of pints but as we all know it depends on if you have eaten, % of alcohol, size etc.

I absolutely agree with you, coolmum.

if in any doubt - don't drive at all

Next day or not, no excuse for drink driving. If you think you may be over the limit you probably are!! Get a taxi instead.

ERM just don't drink if you want to drive

Wouldn't trust them either, even the police ones aren't accurate. That's why it has to be followed up with a blood test for accuracy. I wouldn't drive after a pint but can be useful next morning as a rough guide.

Ideal if your travelling to Europe where it's compulsory to carry one so heat from me

Excellent cheap festive fun buy 10 or so and see who can get the highest score!

Err, not incorrect but the police wouldn't give the correct advice nor would those selling the devices.

These are facts they will not tell you. If you fail a breathalyser test you will be offered or at least should be offered the choice of a blood test and if it's not, you should demand it. There are a number of factors which affect the accuracy, one of my pals has been in the force for over ten years and has told me many people have failed by more than half on top of the drink drive limit and have had a blood test which shows they are well under.

Sorry I should have explained better the first time but didn't expect a stupid reply. Long and short, don't even have one drink but if you do and you are arrested for DUI then always, always demand a blood test.

And these cheap ones will only tell you there is alcohol in your system and will not give an accurate reading.

From your own link
"So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance."

And yes we have had a stop check, and were carrying them

I carry out police station breathaliser procedures at Custody. I am trained and authorised under PACE 1984. I do NOT qualify an evidential specimen with blood. It is illegal and is only carried out in certain circumstances which is a legal statutory option. Nothing to do with the quality of the reading.

You cannot demand a blood test either!!! LOL

Sorry officer dribble but my knowledge seems to be of the old system where you actually had rights but it seems the police corporation is more about profit these days and not fairness.
I have checked and it has changed. Here's the proof it was how I say it was. I apologise for not keeping up to date...LOL

The Police are not a business so don't make money. Proof? From a newspaper article! The Road Traffic Act came into force in the 80's! Don't promote your zero rated law knowledge which you obtain from the media over mine when I do it day day out. Clown.

The law was changed in 2013 here is the bill that was proposed and the final consultation. Here is the link to the bill of law request change and the final summary before completion. You can clearly see on the GOVERNMENTS own website the list of changes. It comes under q1-q4 in te summary here gov.uk/gov…pdf
Do I need to offer more proof? Or do you think the government are liars too? If you really do that job surely you would know...

Are you that thick? You do not have a right for a blood sample, you are offered one dependant on your evidential reading. It is not a given. Stop reading newspapers and get educated. Oh, in case you didn't know, newspapers end up in court for false stories. But you won't know that as they don't publicise it! Off to the pub in your car again?

Oh. The law hasn't changed. A proposal and cosultation is not a change of a statutory instrument, such as PACE. It goes to the House Of Lords for a vote. But you wouldn't know that as they don't tell you in the Daily Mirror.

Listen. You go on about rights in a previous post. I have dealt with dps who have mowed down kids when ****. I have to look after THEIR rights too, doing the procedure. Bet you wouldn't be so anti police if it was your kids who died.
