From this spring every car in France will have to be equipped with a breathalyzer. This announcement made by President Nicolas Sarkozy who has made it a personal crusade to cut the number of road deaths in France.
The new plan will force every driver to have a breathalyzer kit in their cars so they can check their alcohol level before driving.
The president's office said in a statement on Thursday that a kit costs just €1.50 to €2 ($2 to $2.70).
Anyone caught without a kit will face a €17 ($23) fine.
Looks like the companies selling these kits will be rubbing their hands on this vote!
Would love to hear your view on this, do you think this will help to reduce the amount of road deaths in France?
