And how should one know this alcohol tester is mandatory in France? I've never heard about it before reading this thread.

Yep, for example... Or:

Why would I test myself? I know that if I drink even a little bit I shouldn't drive.
That's not the case of many French drivers, who drink one or two (or more) glasses of wine during dinner or during lunch, or a beer or two in the afternoon, or an aperitif etc..... and then drive.


Actually, alcohol is the leading cause of death on French roads (around 1,300 people, out of approx. 4,000, are killed each year because of that over here)

Since all the foreign people driving on French roads must respect French highway code (and all the French laws when they are in France btw), then it obviously includes this new decree (not to mention that I read it in numerous French articles and on several official websites of the French authorities).
That's not true. As I said, a road agreement between many nation in Europe states that you don't have to comply with all equipment requirements of another country. I drove for a year in Germany, where first aid kit and fire extinguisher are mandatory aboard, but since I had and Italian car, I didn't have to comply.

Maybe, but according to the French authorities, it's not the case regarding this decree (and many others btw) !

At least, that's what I read.

I think that they would fine you. But since you are from another country you might just not pay it and nothing will happen (though I'm not sure if you have to pay on the spot or not...).

He didn't say "between St Moritz and Psochiavo":

the first one directly after leaving the main road Sankt Moritz - Poschiavo
So I suppose he refers to this custom: http://maps.google.ch/maps?q=Poschia...gioni&t=h&z=19

If you dont pay a fine on time you might be later suprised about the size of such a fine when it finds you in the end.

German tourists in the USA often shop a lot of clothing (jeans, etc.) being significantly cheaper over there. Then, the "cunning" ones just cut all price tags and march through German customs with a full suitcase of bought stuff - undeclared, of course

A question: if someone break this laws (ex. a woman enter there) what are the legal consequences? I don't think Greek police has the right to act there, neither monks have the power to arrest people.

According to the regulation, not even female animals are allowed in. One of the stupidest things I've ever read
