Random breath tests rejected ... for now

The EU wants to impose random breath tests on motorists, what this has to do with a free trade area I don't know, creating the new crime of "driving whilst in a car". Perhaps this is to counter racial insensitivities of the home grown "driving whilst black" laws. Of course the (unelected) Commision has already said that it is going to force this law on us not matter what our (elected) Parliment says, adding it too the 50% of all our laws that are not passed by Parliment.
