France already has a lower drink drive limit then the UK, with it being 50mg per 100ml of blood. Along with the lower limits, France are desperately trying to reduce alcohol related accidents and have since introduced a new law requiring all drivers including motorcyclists to carry a breathalyser kit.
For any driver not carrying a breathalyser kit, they will be fined around 11 euros, the fine was due to be implemented from November 1st but has been pushed back until March 2013.
For those drivers travelling to France from the UK, you will be able to purchase breathalyser kits for around £2 and they will be available to purchase at ferry/tunnel crossings to France.
