Advice on Driving in Europe
The traffic laws and regulations for driving in Europe vary from country to country, so if you are planning on visiting several countries or just one you should check the regulations before you travel. There are a number of documents that you must carry in addition to the compulsory equipment, such as your vehicle registration document and insurance documents.

**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. So 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.
The original official announcement stated that one unused, certified breathalyser must be produced showing the French certification mark NF. The breathalyser produced has to be in date – single-use breathalysers normally have a validity of 12 months.
