The One Step disposable breathalyser is used to measure blood alcohol content from a breath sample. The lowest blood alcohol content detected by One Step of 0.2 g/L (grams per litre) corresponds to 0.02% blood alcohol level which also corresponds to approximately 0.1 mg/l of alcohol in a breath sample.
A 0.02% by volume blood alcohol content may impair driving ability, causing a right away risk to the life of yourself and of fellow road users. It should be remembered that blood alcohol level rises over about an hour from the moment alcohol is consumed and the level will also depend on gender, weight, fitness, consumption rate, type of alcohol and consumption of food in addition to many other factors. The One Step breathalyser incorporates a glass tube, an active substance in the form of absorption granules, fillers, aluminium foils and 2 protective caps.
French NF Laws
Essentially there is NO punishment for not having a breathalyser when driving in France – it used to be a sanction thought up by the previous PM Sarkozy that has since been postponed after he lost the election in May 2012. We cannot put outdoor links here on Amazon but if you go to the AA website and check you’ll see it states the following
“January 2013 – the French Government announced that the implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely. So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there’s no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance.”
