THE LAW NO 78-732 OF 12TH JULY 1978 AIMED AT PREVENTING THE DRIVING OF VEHICLES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL

LOI NO 78-732 DU 12 JUILLET 1978 TENDANT A PREVENIR LA CONDUITE D'UN VEHICULE SOUS L'EMPIRE D'UN ETAT ALCOOLIQUE

THIS LAW ADDS SOME IMPORTANT QUALIFICATIONS TO THE HIGHWAY CODE AS REGARDS THE DRIVING OF A VEHICLE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL. ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL INNOVATIONS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WHICH IS BEING GIVEN TO PERSONNEL OF THE SERVICES ENTRUSTED WITH SURVEILLANCE OF THE TRAFFIC, TO PROCEED WITH OPERATIONS AIMED AT PREVENTATIVE DETECTION OF ALCOHOL CONSUMED BY DRIVERS, EVEN IN THE ABSENCE OF AN OFFENCE OR AN ACCIDENT. THE OFFICIAL TEXT HAS BEEN REPRODUCED IN THE REVUE DU COMITE INTERMINISTERIEL DE LA SECURITE ROUTIERE NO 19, OCTOBER 1978 AND IN THE REVUE DE LA PREVENTION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE NO 3, OCTOBER 1978, PAGE 17, AS WELL AS IN THE REVUE GENDARMERIE NATIONALE NO 118, 4TH QUARTER 1978, PAGES 7 TO 14.
