The government is imposing a strict law against drunk driving, under which violators will be arrested immediately and be subject to prosecution within 48 hours, a Bangkok seminar on road safety was told yesterday.

A mandatory fine of between Bt5,000 and Bt20,000 will also be imposed on convicted violators, along with the drivers’ licence being suspended for six months or forever for repeat offenders, judge Prasong Mahaleetrakool said.

The law is currently being tried out at Bangkok’s Thung Maha Mek police station, where drunkdriving violations are the most frequent. “The casualties from road accident in their jurisdiction is even higher than robberies or other crimes,” Pol MajGeneral Anuchai Lekbamrung told the seminar.
