Not necessary, project cancelled. Brilliant marketing, though.,
This review is from: PACK OF 2 FRENCH BREATHALYSERS with INSTRUCTIONS & LONG EXPIRY DATE
We were about to buy a set of these when we found out (from French friends, living in deepest rural France) that the project has been cancelled, and these are no longer a legal requirement. Excellent! Won't waste our hard-earned buying a set then. Hope that helps someone else :) .

Googling after I read your comment ,the AA say that there is still a legal requirement to have a breathalyser (in fact you need 2 in case you have to use one) but that they dropped the €11 fine that they were going to implement for not having one. I think it is easier to have them, than to have the hassle of trying to explain, in French, why you haven't.

NO, they don't. Did you even read past the first paragraph of the article you linked? "So theoretically 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." http://droit-finances.commentcamarche.net
Oh, and I'm perfectly capable of explaining, in French, why we don't carry the test. If you are not, and prefer to carry one, that's your choice.
