To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the potential impact on road deaths and injuries of introducing a system, such as that in France, requiring drivers to keep a disposable breathalyser in their vehicles.
The Government have not assessed the potential impact of requiring the carrying of the disposable breathalysers system by drivers in the UK, because they have no plans to introduce a system similar to that in France. It will however be interested to learn about the experience in France.
Requiring the use of disposal breathalysers in the UK would place a burden on the many drivers who do not drink and drive and the police in enforcing the requirement. It could also risk more drivers trying to drive when close to the legal limit.
