Though the breathalyser is on the statute in France it was announced that no action would be taken against anyone who doesn't carry one.
Haven't seen them in the shops there for a couple of years now.
I've never carried one and never been asked.

CE ??????
I'm probably being a bit thick, but what does CE stand for?

It's the European version of the UK BSI or Kite mark.

So, if most of my ancient kit doesn't have CE markings will Monsewer Genderme know ? I've got gloves over 15 years old - I said I was cheap. Mind you, some of the new stuff seems to be missing CE or is in a different form?  Ah...f#ck 'em! Last thing on  my mind is being worried about a label...or reflective stickers ...Censored

The CE markings are mandatory on all clothing sold in the shops. They won't be asking you to show your leather thong on the roadside.
Same applies to the reflective stickers, new helmets sold must comply and have the stickers, but riders can continue to wear appropriate older helmets, not the latest compliance.
 
I saw this on a French forum, copied from the French regulations at that time, so I think it's genuine.

Just looked at a bunch of new helmets online, can't see any reflective stickers?
