"Great for testing the kids before school." That comment alone deserves heat lol

Sorry but you shouldn't need this. Just don't have any alcohol if you intend to drive or get a taxi.
Edited by: "EMtart" 12th Jan 2015

If this place stocks something, it usually means it's available to all sorts of job lot/clearance wholesalers and will end up in poundshops, market stalls etc, so don't assume they're the cheapest, unless you haven't got time to shop around.
My local store is regularly beaten on price by a couple of ordinary small town family businesses who make a point of undercutting them..... AND making a profit i.e. the 'original factory shop' is not a bargain store, and makes so much money they give each member of staff about 5 'staff discount' cards for their mates, which gives them 20% off all merchandise - you can't give that big a discount unless you're making a whopping profit on everything.
It's a free country, so buy where you like, but please don't be fooled by the hype - they never open a store anywhere near Primark, Matalan etc so they're not as cheap as they pretend they are !

good find op, heat added

Legal requirement for driving in France, so useful for anyone crossing the channel (assuming this meets standards.... those sneaky French)

these aren't meant for using straight after a drink, but for the next day when most people would assume they're ok to drive

Good idea because most decent people would not intentionally drink drive but I know a few who have been pulled by the police the next day!

Well said. Never drink if you intend to get a taxi! It's just not worth it.

Wouldn't trust something that costs 50p for the sake of my license. If in doubt means you're probably over the limit

not true any more - in theory still required but fines have been suspended indefinitely so in practice not required

and these will not meet the French standard

Thanks for this. Saved me some money by prompting me to look into French law!

Am planning a ski trip to France next month. I'd heard breathalysers were a legal requirement so was planning on buying a couple. Just googled the law and although it is a legal requirement there is no sanction for not having one. So it is basically unenforceable. I don't drink so would never actually need to test myself.

I dont drive the day after either. because im usualllaid on the sofa feeling sorry for myself.

Accuracy is very low, but these should not be necessary.....if we adopted the best drink drive zero policy then there would be no excuses.

Packets actually say they are only a guide & as such may give over the limit drivers a false sense of security.

Any alcohol impairs judgement, reflexes etc .....simple solution....if you've had even one alcoholic drink do not drive

it used to be law that you had to have hi vis vests in the front of the car, spare bulbs warning triangles so I would look into this. and maybe some headlight altering stickers.

I need a drink after getting cut up by bloody taxis who seem to think those yellow things on their cars are for decoration.

Why are people just focusing on drink driving? A lot of workplaces use these now. God you guys are so grim. Not everything is down to the worst case scenario. Stop reading other comments and expanding on them.

Yeah but have you ever had to deal with the French Police?They are Gits.
I live in France and for an easy life Id forsake a few quid & get the approved breathalyzers.

Yes, I couldn't get my head round that for a long time, that and the pedestrian right of way at junctions where you are forced to stop in the most awkward and dangerous place whilst trying to cross a junction because the pedestrian has the green man whilst you also have a green light.

Here is a very long example of a practical (sort of) use for a breathalyser.

I go to france almost every year, and have to say that away from paris I find the motorway and country roads to be very easy to get along with. it seems to be more in the villages where y ou have to watch out.

Yes the motorways are excellent long long roads without much thought required, Ive never seen so little traffic before and can actually use cruise control which didn't get much use in England.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this seems to happen less and less. The entrance to all of the towns and villages seem to have the yellow diamond, indicating that you have the right of way. The only time I have seen priority from the right was at junctions on small country roads. Doesn't stop me looking for the stop lines at every single junction though.

They are trying to do away with this archaic law but its such a mess in some places that you cant take any chances on assuming other people wont just pull out on you when they don't have a give way sign. I live in Dijon & there are plenty of roads with side roads without giveaway signs that means you still have to give way to the right. It can also be a bit bewildering when you are coming off a side road and they stop to give way to you . It just doesn't seem right.

If you're think you might be over the limit and need to test it, why the hell are you driving. These products are irresponsible and so is every person who's voted hot. Seriously.

I half agree with you but where I do see a sensible use is the day after as pointed out before. Most people feel fine the day after but are still over the limit without realizing and therefore are being responsible by testing themselves.

Thanks for your considered reply and I agree that is a more responsible use. In all truth my opinion is still that if you think that if you are having second thoughts then you just shouldn't, but thanks for being able to have a conversation about it
