FIGHT AGAINST DRUNKEN DRIVING: THE BREATHALYZER

LUTTE CONTRE L'ALCOOL AU VOLANT : L'ANALYSEUR D'HALEINE

DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF TESTS CARRIED OUT IN PALAISEAU, NEAR PARIS, WITH A BREATH ANALYZING DEVICE. THE TESTS WERE CONDUCTED EVERY TIME THAT A BLOOD TEST APPEARED NECESSARY. IT WAS OBSERVED THAT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECT ON DRIVERS WAS MORE MARKED, FOR THE OFFENDER KNOWS THE RESULT OF THE TEST IMMEDIATELY. FURTHERMORE, THE USE OF THIS DEVICE DOES NOT REQUIRE THE PRESENCE OF A DOCTOR. PART 2 EXAMINES THE BRITISH BREATHALYZER AND GIVES CRITERIA FOR THE OFFICIAL ACCEPTANCE OF AMERICAN DEVICES.
