Breathalysers in France
January 2013 - Drivers in France have been required to carry a self-test breathalyser since July 2012 with enforcement by fines originally planned for 1 November but subsequently postponed to 1 March 2013. Now the French government has announced that the implementation of the sanction (fine) for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely.
How to position the GB sticker
We include a Euro symbol GB sticker in this pack for application to your registration plate when travelling within Europe. (Please note that when travelling outside Europe, it is a legal requirement to display an appropriate oval-shaped GB sticker.) Vehicles travelling within Europe not displaying the Euro symbol are required by law to display an oval GB sticker.
