  • Description

    FRANCE - AND A NEW CAMPAIGN AGAINST DRUNKEN DRIVERS. A MONTH-LONG EXPERIMENT BEGAN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) TO TEST THE SUITABILITY OF BREATHALYSERS AS A MEANS OF DETECTING SUCH DRIVERS.

    THE EXPERIMENT IS BEING LIMITED TO ONE AREA - AROUND VERSAILLES, JUST OUTSIDE PARIS - AND, IF SUCCESSFUL, BREATHALYSERS WILL BE ADOPTED THROUGHOUT FRANCE.

    OUR CAMERAMAN WAS OUT TODAY WITH A SQUAD OF GENDARMES AND THEIR RADIO VAN. THE BREATHALYSER ITSELF IS A PLASTIC BAG CONTAINING CHEMICAL CRYSTALS, WHICH REGISTER THE SOBRIETY OF THE DRIVER.

    THE TESTS ARE NOT COMPULSORY, BUT DRIVERS REFUSING TO EXHALE INTO THE PLASTIC BAG MUST INSTEAD HAVE THE NORMAL BLOOD TEST.
