The law came into force on July 1st 2012, with a grace period of 4 months whereby motorists during that time will only be reminded to acquire breathalysers, this period was due to expire on November 1st, but due to a continuing shortage of breathalysers in many regions of France, the grace period has been extended.
Will Goodridge, I Spy Camping founder, explains further 'We started receiving reports from families travelling to campsites in the summer that there was a shortage of breathalysers. We now understand that manufacturers have not been able to keep up with demand.'
