Product Description

This twin-pack consists of two Breath Alcohol Detectors and is intended to measure alcohol in the human breath. The results are used in the diagnosis of alcohol intoxication. The set contains two blow bags and two tubes. This set is NFX Compliant for legal use in France from the 1st of July 2012. Breath Alcohol Detector is a semi-quantitative, rapid screening test. It indicates relative Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) at 0.02%, 0.04%, 0.05%, 0.06%, 0.08% or 0.10% cut-off levels. Each detector contains crystals that detect a specific cut-off level of BAC. The test is based on a chemical reaction. Alcohol reacts with the crystals in the detector to produce a color change. The color change depends on the amount of alcohol in the breath. If the test is positive, the amount of alcohol in the breath is greater than or equal to the cut-off level of the detector.

Bought these as required in France, however decided to try one after drinking alcohol. It came back as under the limit but there was no way i was. If your buying these to comply with french driving laws then fine but I would NOT use these to assess if you're safe to drive!

Delivered quickly but not tested. Essential for travel in France. The product went into the car and was ready to show and I assume use when stopped by the enthusiastic traffic. I assume that the French now have us using our own breathalyser when they do random tests or stop us. Is that 20 words?! Supplier was quick and there were no problems.

I have bought these twice since the French breathalyzer law was introduced. Thankfully I have not been called upon to use them (yet) but they are a must if you are driving in France and these are good value for money. I just wish they would have longer use-by dates on them though because the last ones I bought had less than 2 years' life in them.

You have to carry these in France now, because you're supposed to test yourself if you think you may be close to the limit, not because the police make you use them instead of providing one themselves. That would be a bit daft, as they're not all the same and the police wouldn't be able to use the results.

I've not used mine yet so I can't comment on that aspect, but they are less than half the price as on board the ferry or at service stations in France, hence the 4 stars.

We bought this product for our motorhome for when we go to France, it is now a legal requirement to have these with you in your vehicle irrespective of whever you are a drinker or teetotal.

You don't have to use it just be ready to show it if you are stopped and the French police do sometimes target British holidaymakers.

If you haven't got one you can get an on the spot fine. Don't spoil your holiday get one of these.

Bought this for a touring caravan holiday to France. I thing the current legislation there has not been clarified as to whether you actually have to carry a set but got the breathalyzer kit just in case. Didn't use them so can't comment on their effectiveness. However I can say after 30 years in the police that these devices were never accurate.

These breathalysers are expensive to buy anywhere and it seems a bit of a con to have to buy them. I can't comment on their quality since I have not been forced to demonstrate one yet! The package arrived promptly and went straight into my car glove box.
