France, you legislate that something remains
France, you legislate that something remains

Did you think Spanish politicians have gone crazy? Well, our neighbors to the north are even more so. On the one hand, the high visibility law for all motorcyclists (except mopeds) has been removed from their sleeves, a law that will come into force in 2013 and that requires everyone who gets on a motorcycle to wear a reflector of at least 150 square centimeters. This, which is already debatable and is raising some dust, is nothing with another law that will enter into force on July 1 of this year. It turns out that all vehicles (again except mopeds) A Breathing Air Alcohol Detection Kit will need to be available. The famous little machine to blow.

At first glance it may seem like a good idea, but if you think about it a little, it is out of the game. If you are one of those who drink and also drive, you do it knowingly, so you will not use the device because you already know that you are drunk and you do not give a damn what happens. And if you are a responsible person, you will not need the breathalyzer because simply if you drink you will leave the vehicle parked and you will look for alternative transport.

To me, it would seem much more effective if the mechanism was incorporated in vehicles, in all of them, and that if you give more than the allowed rate just do not allow to start. But this thing about you carrying your breathalyzer in your pocket and using it to find out if you're drunk or not sounds almost like a Gila joke. In this case they have not explained if the law will also be mandatory for those of us from another country. But it gives me that from July in addition to looking for the French road maps you will have to include the little machine to be able to circulate through the neighboring country. What is getting interesting about putting the motorcycle on a train to cross France?
