    I have received an e-mail from Le Shuttle about travelling at busy times (we are booked on the 6th July).
    Included is the following :-

    In-car breathalyser

    On 1 July 2012, a new legislation came into force in France. All drivers of a motorised land vehicle, excluding mopeds, must possess a digital breathalyser or an unused (and immediately available) breathalyser kit which conforms to NF standards. This rule equally applies to vehicles registered outside France. Only vehicles fitted with Breathalyser Interlocks are excluded. Failure to carry a breathalyser in your vehicle will NOT incur a fine.

    Be fully prepared. Call into the AA travelshop, in our Folkestone Passenger Terminal Building, for all compulsory or recommended car equipment required for driving abroad.


    I was under the impression this was postponed?

    I have a similar e mail.

    It has been postponed indefinitely however, as the tunnel travel shop ordered huge quantities in anticipation, they will need to unload them before the use by date!

    Cynic moi?

    You are still required to carry the test kits.
    It is the fine for not doing so that has been postponed.
    Only in France eh :Doh:
