We presumably lack some of the cultural knowledge today, eg why cross-gartering was funny.

I was hoping it was going to develop into this year's Parrot thread. It had potential there for a moment.

I got confused by the statement " got all the requirements except the breathalyser". I mean it's the norm for us all when planning a car trip, right?

Wallet - check
Car keys - check
Luggage - check
Dogs (including part dogs) - check
Breathalyser - check.

WTF?

I'm guessing the booze will be for the 3 1/2 dogs? How else are they going to get through such an excursion with Mary Nesbitt?

Someone phone the RSPCA, FFS!

Apparently the French require breathalyzers in the car due to the drunken carnage on their roads. I don't think the dogs are required to test though.

Blimey, Google and.....

Breathalysers
1 March 2012 - the French government confirmed that from 1 July 2012 drivers of all motor vehicles and motorcycles (excluding mopeds) must carry a breathalyser. The regulation will be enforced from 1 November 2012 and anyone stopped after that date who fails to produce a breathalyser when requested will receive an on the spot fine of €11.

I don't think 11 euros will stop them from filling up with wine and pastis and then getting into their cars.
